Learn more about new Cardinal Care from Medicaid

Go to 


   On January 1, 2023, Virginia Medicaid will rebrand all of its health coverage programs for Medicaid members. Cardinal Care will be the new unifying name for Virginia's two existing managed care programs — Medallion 4.0 and Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus (CCC Plus) — and will also include members enrolled in fee-for-service, Plan First, and Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS).

   There will be no changes to the coverage or services that our members have come to expect.

   You will begin to see the new brand on Medicaid ID cards in January. Here's what to expect:

Fee-for-Service

  • The blue-and-white Medicaid ID cards will still be valid. Both the old and new cards will enable claims processing. New Cardinal Care Plan First ID cards will clearly reflect the program's limited benefits coverage.

Managed Care

  • Managed care health plans will revise ID cards to replace Medallion and CCC Plus program names with the Cardinal Care logo. While most health plans will issue rebranded cards in the first quarter of 2023, some will begin sending new cards to members in late 2022. The new cards will be active January 1, 2023.

VCSB Racial Equity, Social Justice and Health Equity Committee takes staff donations to local organizations

WARM

VCSB staff donated over 50 sweaters, coats and jackets in early December, which were dropped at Ruth’s Warm House in Waynesboro. Any items not utilized by current shelter members at that location will be taken into the “field” to the satellite WARM shelter to provide to others who may need them.

VCSB staff donated 50 toothbrushes, 15 tubes of toothpaste, several bars of soap, and containers of dental floss for LifeWorks Project. The LifeWorks Project is putting together 30 care bundles, which includes hygiene items, sleeping bags and tarps for one of our local homeless encampments.

Guests at WARM shelters need to meet the van at the pavilion parking lot beside the fire station in #Waynesboro. The van will do pick-ups from 5 - 5:30p nightly.
