Once you apply and receive an official notice of enrollment from Virginia, including a Medicaid card, it’s time to select your health plan. A health plan is managed by a private insurance company with a network of doctors and other medical providers working together to give you comprehensive health care. This may also be referred to as a Managed Care Organization, or MCO.
