Medicaid Nursing Home Admission


Two factors determine your eligibility for Medicaid Nursing Home Admission:

  1. The level of care you need meets the criteria for Nursing Home Care. Medical need is determined by the public health nurse and family services specialist who will visit your home.
  2. Your income and resources are within the limits of Medicaid eligibility. Your income and Medicaid may jointly finance nursing home care under the Virginia Medicaid program. Your financial eligibility for Medicaid will be determined by a Long Term Care Medicaid worker who will evaluate your income and resources. 

If you have other questions, please contact the Department of Family Services at 703-771-5742.
