Virginia Beach-based Optima Health has signed with the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services to provide the state’s first Medicaid managed long-term services and supports program.

The program, called Commonwealth Coordinated Care (CCC) Plus, will provide coverage to Virginians with complex health issues, many of whom require long-term services and supports as a result of aging, chronic illness or disability.

The program will go into effect on Aug. 1 for the Hampton Roads area, with other regions being phased in throughout the rest of the year.

Optima Health, which is part of Norfolk-based Sentara Healthcare, provides health insurance coverage to approximately 440,000 members.
