Mileage Reimbursement

 Did you know that you can register to become a driver with LogistiCare? As a registered driver you are eligible for mileage reimbursement whenever transporting a consumer to a Medicaid appointment (i.e. doctor, dentist, therapy).

Money Savers

All children in foster care qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch. Some schools offer breakfast and afternoon snacks as well; each school has a different application process that usually begins at the time of enrollment. Ensure that your child is receiving this benefit!

 Based on federal government eligibility standards Medicaid-eligible children in foster care are also entitled to WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children) benefits. These benefits are for children aged 0-5 and include food packages, formula, diapers, and other costly but needed items. Contact 1-888-WIC FOOD or the Virginia Hotline 1-888-942-3663 to get started. Click here for more info.
