The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) rebranded Virginia’s Medicaid program as Cardinal Care.  All managed care and fee-for-service Medicaid members will automatically be part of Cardinal Care.  Cardinal Care, Virginia’s Medicaid Program, will continue to offer members the same health care services and will not reduce or change any existing coverage.
