CCC Plus

Cardinal Care is Coming Soon

Virginia Medicaid is rebranding its health coverage programs as Cardinal Care on January 1, 2023. All managed care and fee-for-service members will automatically become part of Cardinal Care. Some members may soon receive a new ID card with the Cardinal Care logo that will become effective on January 1, 2023.


Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus (CCC Plus) is a Medicaid managed long-term services and support program that serves over 260,000 individuals throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. CCC Plus uses an integrated delivery model, across a comprehensive range of health services, to assist members with complex care needs. Enrollment in the program is required for qualifying individuals, who benefit from the person-centered care management program. CCC Plus strives to improve health care quality, access and efficiency for its members through contracted managed care organizations, also known as health plans.
