Who We Are.

Access Family Care (AFC) is a family-centered agency recognized by the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) and the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) within the Commonwealth of Virginia.  We support  families throughout the state and strive to meet the needs of all families, including those living in underserved areas such as Southwestern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.  Access Family Care offers Case Management under the DD Waiver, Service Facilitation for ID/DD and EDCD Waiver recipients, and pro bono advocacy.  Our providers have experience with vocational/day support, housing options, AT/DME/EM, supported employment and behavioral supports.  AFC supports adults and elders with a family-focused approach and respect for each individual's unique place within the community.

Access Pediatric Care (APC) is our pediatric specialty team and serves our consumers under 21 years of age.  We have considerable experience with exceptional children and know that our youngest consumers have needs that are quite different than the needs of adults and elders.  Our pediatric team works extensively with EPSDT, supports IEPs, assists with referrals for PT/OT/ST/ABA, community supports (for families and siblings), AT/EM/DME, and many other supports.  We advocate tirelessly for our children and and their families and favor a proactive, rather than a reactive, approach.  

Access Family Care & Access Pediatric Care are built upon the delivery model of Relationship-Based Care (RBC).  Our community associations and resources are of great importance to us and we value our rapport with other agencies.  We believe that fostering professional relationships allows us to better serve our consumers  To that end, we welcome questions and feedback from other agencies and often work collaboratively with area CSBs to overcome challenges using creative, out-of-the-box solutions.  And we are always, always looking for ways to improve our services and welcome suggestions from the families we serve and the professionals with whom we interact.


Care Coordination for Special Needs Families



What is a Waiver?

Waivers are Medicaid Programs designed to allow targeted populations (such as the elderly, intellectually disabled or developmentally delayed) to live in the community (rather than in institutions). These programs “waive” certain requirements for Medicaid eligibility in these target populations. Parental finances are not considered when the applicant is a child, regardless of income or assets.

Other requirements include significant health issues and functional limitations as a result of those issues.
