Why SCHIP Matters for Virginia

In Virginia, the FAMIS health plan provides affordable medical and dental coverage to nearly 200,000 children and pregnant women in Virginia living in families earning too much to qualify for Medicaid (over $26,321/year for a family of three or 134% FPL) and less than $39,581 for a family of three or 200% FPL. The State Children's Health Insurance Partnership (or "SCHIP") is the federal program that enables FAMIS; however, SCHIP funding expires September 30, 2015. If funding does not continue, the majority of those insured through FAMIS will lose their medical and dental benefits. Read what the Coalition is doing to ensure no Virginians lose coverage.
