The Cover Virginia Call Center is currently experiencing higher than normal call volumes and wait times. You can visit to apply for health coverage, renew your existing coverage, or report changes to your income or household. For general questions, click here to email us.

We have included some tools to help you work out if you or your children may be eligible for Medicaid, FAMIS, Plan First or other health benefits through the Federal Marketplace.

Check your eligibility

Click on the Eligibility Screening Tool on the right and answer a few questions to find out which health care coverage options may be available to you.

  • Answer questions for the people in your family that are included on your federal taxes.
  • If you don't file federal taxes, just answer for family members living with you (spouse and children under 21).
  • You must answer each question with a number, even if it is 0.

The graph below is a quick reference guide to help you decide what health care benefits you or your family may qualify for. It shows what coverage options are available by program and by income. The numbers on the left side of the graph show the upper percentage limits of Federal Poverty Level (FPL)* for each program.

Chart showing Coverage Options Available by Program and Income

*The set minimum amount of gross income that a family needs for food, clothing, transportation, shelter and other necessities. In the United States, this level is determined by the Department of Health and Human Services. FPL varies according to family size. The number is adjusted for inflation and reported annually in the form of poverty guidelines. Public assistance programs, such as Medicaid in the U.S., define eligibility income limits as some percentage of FPL.

To help you:
138% FPL = $1,482 gross income per month for 1 person
138% FPL = $3,048 gross income per month for a family of 4
(includes a 5% income disregard)
