The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) wants to hear from Medicaid members. DMAS is pleased to announce that we have established the Medicaid Member Advisory Committee. This committee, made up entirely of Medicaid members, will provide advice and recommendations to the Director of DMAS on matters concerning Medicaid services and programs in Virginia.

If you are a member of Medicaid in Virginia, or an authorized representative of a member, DMAS invites you to send us some brief information about yourself for consideration for membership on the committee. Your voice is important to help DMAS to continue to update programs and services that will increasingly meet your needs. Read the stories behind a few of the Faces of Virginia Medicaid.

While DMAS has selected committee members for the current term, we are beginning to recruit members for the 2021 term. For more information about this advisory committee, as well as to submit an application for membership, please visit

Or, you may email DMAS at with any questions that you might have.

Thank you.
