RD572 - Biennial Report of the Board of Medical Assistance Services – FY 2017-2018

Executive Summary:

To Virginia’s Honorable Delegates and Senators:

During my first few months with DMAS, Virginia passed new legislation that beginning on January 1, 2019 will expand Medicaid coverage for up to 400,000 Virginians. I am excited to join the Agency at this time of important change. DMAS stands ready to continue strengthening our existing programs while implementing these new initiatives.

In addition to sharing details about Medicaid Expansion, this report highlights key information about the Agency, provides a general overview of the Medicaid members DMAS serves, and details how we support Virginians. Most importantly, this report illustrates where the agency is headed and how DMAS plans to advance its mission and stewardship to the Commonwealth.

Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn more about Virginia’s DMAS through this biennial report to the General Assembly. We look forward to continuing to work together to serve our great Commonwealth.


/s/ Jennifer S. Lee, M.D.
Director, Department of Medical Assistance Services
