Health Care for Children

Important COVID-19 Vaccine Update: The FDA Approves Vaccine for Children Ages 5 - 11

The FDA has approved the COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11. You can now make sure your children are protected at school, during sports activities, and when they are spending time with friends. 


High-Quality Care is Important to a Child's Success

High-quality child care programs are linked to greater achievement and success in a child’s life. They are also necessary for many Virginia families in which parents or guardians work during the day. ChildCareVA has a search tool and resources to help you find the child care that is right for your family.


Make Sure Your Children Have Health Coverage This School Year

Going back to school looks a little different this year. As your children head back to school, Virginia Medicaid wants to help keep them protected by making sure they have quality health coverage. 


Plan for a Better Future

We can help you plan for the future. Medicaid coverage also includes family planning services. These services include education and support to help you decide if or when you want to have a baby. Lab testing, counseling, contraceptives, and more are covered.


Protect the Well-Being of Your Child

If you meet the FAMIS income limits and are either a pregnant woman or have a child, we may have coverage for you. Apply for our FAMIS or FAMIS Moms programs to help protect your child’s future. FAMIS is for children, and FAMIS Moms is for pregnant women.
