Family Access to Medical Insurance Security Plan (FAMIS) is a Medical Assistance program that makes direct payments to health care service providers for eligible individuals and families who are unable to pay for needed medical services. Medicaid for children is called FAMIS Plus.

FAMIS, and its program for pregnant women, FAMIS MOMS, covers uninsured children under age 19 years and pregnant women, with income that is too high for FAMIS Plus but is under the income limit for FAMIS/FAMIS MOMS.

FAMIS pays for a variety of medical services, including prescription drugs, doctor visits, nursing facility care and hospital care.

Information about FAMIS is available online from the Virginia Department of Social Services at You can also contact the Richmond County Department of Social Services at (804) 333-4088, call 1-866-87FAMIS, or go online at
