Overview

VPLC’s work on Health Care Law focuses on major health programs for low-income Virginians. Access to health care is critically important to these residents of the Commonwealth. Many rely on public health insurance programs such as Medicaid, Medicare and FAMIS, which involve complex laws and policies. We often work with coalitions pursuing the same goals as ourselves. These coalitions include Healthcare for All Virginians, Virginia Coalition for Children’s Health, Virginians for Improved Access to Dental Care and Advocates for the Disabled.

Main Issues

Education, Outreach, and Training

Eligibility for government health programs can be complex and confusing and program rules change often. Our knowledgeable health staff provide ongoing technical assistance and training about health law issues to legal services staff, private attorneys, outreach workers and other service providers.
