Virginia Administrative Code
Title 12. Health
Agency 5. Department of Health
Chapter 200. Regulations Governing Eligibility Standards and Charges for Medical Care Services to Individuals
6/30/2022

12VAC5-200-30. Purpose of chapter.

The board has promulgated this chapter to: (i) establish financial eligibility criteria to determine if a person is medically indigent and therefore qualified to receive medical care services from the department without charge; (ii) establish income scales and a mechanism for determining charges for medical care provided by the department to individuals who are not medically indigent, based upon their ability to pay; (iii) establish a mechanism for handling appeals and waivers; and (iv) establish continuity of eligibility among state agencies. The regulations are constructed to assure that eligibility criteria remain appropriate for changing economic conditions.
