Amend Regulations Following 2022 Periodic Review
Action 6213
General Information
Action Summary This existing regulation establishes a means to identify an individual as medically indigent for the purpose of receiving no-cost medical services by the Department of Health. It also establishes a framework of charges and an incremental charge scale based on a person’s ability to pay, which will be consistently applied throughout the Department and its local offices. In addition, it allows services to reduce vaccine-preventable and other communicable diseases to be provided at low or no cost to individuals with limited ability to pay for them. Amendments are needed to this regulation to make format and style changes, add or update references to the Code of Virginia, remove duplicative language, and add clarifying language. Duplicative language will be removed, and information in some sections will be relocated to other sections for continuity.
