FAMIS is program of the Commonwealth of Virginia to provide health insurance to children under 19 years-old who are uninsured and who are not eligible for Medicaid.

There are various Medical Assistance Programs offered in Virginia. Each program covers different groups of people and each program has different eligibility requirements. At Common Help, applicants can be screened for all possible programs based on age, income, financial resources and other information. To be eligible, applicants must meet the financial and non-financial eligibility conditions for the program.
