ISLE OF WIGHT CO. -- Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) doesn't want Virginia to have an health care gap.

At 2:00 p.m., the governor will be in Portsmouth, at  Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center, to discuss closing the coverage gap.  

Last week, McAuliffe launched the Commonwealth Coordinated Care program to manage services people in Central Virginia and Tidewater who receive support from both the federal Medicare program and the state-federal Medicaid program.  According to a press release, the program will blend and coordinate Medicare and Medicaid benefits for approximately 78,000 eligible Virginians.

People who are eligible will receive letters in the coming weeks notifying them of their eligibility for CCC and providing information on how to enroll.

Earlier in the day, McAuliffe was at Montague Farms in Windsor for an economic development announcement. Its Web site says the company grows, processes and delivers clean, quality soybeans.
