Have Medicaid? Start here:
In 2017, the Department of Medical Assistance Services launched an enhanced substance use disorder treatment benefit - Addiction and Recovery Treatment Services (ARTS). ARTS provides treatment for those Medicaid, FAMIS, and FAMIS MOMS members with a substance disorder across the state of Virginia. You can talk with your primary care doctor about treatment options, or you can use the resources below:
- ARTS Medicaid Provider Map
- Community Service Boards
- Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Licensed Provider Search
Are you Uninsured? Start here:
If you are uninsured, you are not alone. There is assistance if you cannot afford health insurance or cannot pay for medical care. Virginia's Medicaid rules for adults changed in 2019 and many adults are now eligible for free or low-cost coverage through Medicaid. Virginians without insurance may be eligible for Medicaid/FAMIS.
