If you are currently enrolled in Medicaid, FAMIS or Plan First, your health care coverage needs to be renewed annually. You will receive a form in the mail if you need to renew your health coverage.

If you recently received a renewal application for these programs, you may have noticed that the application looks different than before. There’s a new process to renewing your coverage. The first time you use this new form to renew, it may take you longer than before to complete. However, you could be automatically renewed for up to 5 years without having to complete a renewal form if nothing has changed and you check a box at the end of the form that allows us to look at your electronic income data each year, including information from tax returns.

  1. Online: Through your account on www.commonhelp.virginia.gov, or;
  2. By phone: Call Cover Virginia at 1-855-242-8282
  3. By mail: Complete the paper renewal form and return it to your local Department of Social Services.

If you are currently enrolled in a Federal Health Insurance Marketplace plan, you need to renew your coverage annually. You can learn about the renewal process or renew your coverage at healthcare.gov
