Programs for Children in Fairfax County and the Cities of Fairfax and Falls Church
FAMIS Plus (Formerly known as Medicaid)
This program pays certain medical and health care costs for eligible children ages 0-19.
Services are offered through private Medicaid-certified doctors or Managed Care.
For children NOT eligible for FAMIS Plus or FAMIS.
Pediatric and dental care are provided for children birth to 18 years old through private physicians and dentists and a health maintenance organization (HMO).
Some services include primary care, urgent care, well-child care, immunizations, x-rays, laboratory tests, pharmacy services and case management. This program does not offer in-patient and outpatient hospital care.
Fairfax County previously partnered with Inova Health Systems to provide care to uninsured residents at three Community Health Care Network (CHCN) sites in Merrifield (Fairfax), South County (Alexandria) and North County (Reston). On July 1, 2019, Neighborhood Health assumed operations of the Merrifield and South County sites, and HealthWorks for Northern Virginia assumed operations of the North County site. Fairfax County and Inova are working with Neighborhood Health and HealthWorks to assure a smooth transition and that patients continue to get the best, most compassionate care possible.
