Cardinal Care
Virginia's Medicaid Program

CCC Plus

Introducing Cardinal Care

Virginia's Medicaid program is transitioning to Cardinal Care, a new brand that encompasses all health coverage programs for all Medicaid members. Some MCOs began issuing cards with the new logo to members in late 2022. However, the old blue-and-white Medicaid ID cards are still valid.

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. Providers who participate with any or all of the contracted health plans offer a comprehensive range of health services to serve members with complex care needs. To ensure that CCC Plus members receive high-touch, person-centered care, providers will collaborate on an interdisciplinary care team that is led by the member’s care coordinator.  Providers can receive training from each of the health plans regarding their service authorizations, claims and care coordination for the CCC Plus population.

Who Participates in CCC Plus?

CCC Plus includes Medicaid members who:

  • Are 65 or older
  • Are children or adults with disabilities (ABD Medicaid coverage groups)
  • Receive Medicare benefits and full Medicaid benefits (dual eligible)
  • Receive Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS) in a facility or through one of the home and community-based (HCBS) waivers.

DD waiver services are covered through Medicaid fee-for-service.
