Gov. Terry McAullife announced Monday the launch of A Healthy Virginia, a plan he says will expand healthcare services to more than 200,000 citizens.
The plan addresses several areas, including mental health, health insurance, children’s coverage, dental benefits for pregnant women, treatment for drug addicts and veteran care. The 10 steps in the plan are staggered, with some set to start this month, like helping to enroll eligible children in Medicaid. Other parts of the plan come later, with all 10 steps underway by July.
