Health coverage for non-citizens

Health coverage for non-citizens

Non-citizens who meet other eligibility requirements such as income and have an eligible immigration status may qualify for free or low-cost health coverage from Virginia Medicaid. Children under age 19 and pregnant persons who are lawfully residing immigrants and meet other eligibility requirements may also qualify.

In the past, Green Card holders (lawful permanent residents) with 5 years or more of residency in the United States had to show proof of 40 quarters (10 years) of work history to qualify for health coverage from Virginia Medicaid.

Starting April 1, 2021, Green Card holders with 5 years or more of residency in the United States do not need to show proof of work history to qualify for Virginia Medicaid.
