  • Commonwealth's FAMIS MOMS and FAMIS Select (modified: 4 years ago)
    Virginia has requested to extend its title XXI section 1115 demonstration known as the "Family Access to Medical Insurance Security Plan (FAMIS)", with no changes. The demonstration expands title XXI coverage to uninsured pregnant women with income up to 200% of the federal poverty level who are not eligible for Medicaid through a program known as FAMIS MOMS and also uses title XXI funds to support a health insurance premium assistance program known as FAMIS Select. Children must first be found eligible and enroll in FAMIS before electing coverage through FAMIS Select. The federal public comment period will be open from July 13, 2015 through August 11, 2015.
