MedicaidMedicaid Image

Medicaid is an assistance program that pays medical service providers for medical services rendered to eligible individuals. The Medicaid eligibility determination consists of an evaluation of an individual's situation that compares each of the individual's circumstances to an established standard.

Medicaid is established under Title XIX of the Federal Social Security Act and is financed by state and federal funds. Virginia law provides that the Medicaid program be administered by the Department of Medical Assistance Services. Determination of eligibility for medical assistance is the responsibility of local departments of social services (in the City of Alexandria, this is the Department of Community & Human Services) under the supervision of the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS). Exception: VDSS carries direct responsibility for the determination of eligibility of certain patients in Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.

For information about eligibility and to apply for medical assistance, vist Common Help.

To contact the City of Alexandria, Department of Community & Human Services, call 703.746.5902.
