Curious if anyone knows how Medicaid works if you want to move to another State?

       I had my accident in one state and stayed there for three years in a nursing home. My cousin wanted me to be closer to her and be near a rehab hospital. It took one year of paperwork to allow me to move. I don't know if that helps.

    Thank you. Did you move first... so that you were 1 year without Medicaid support?  I wasn’t sure if you have to be a resident first to apply for Medicaid in another state.

      When I had my accident I lived in Indiana. I was in a nursing home for three years with full coverage. Then I moved to Michigan to a new nursing home. The coverage was seamless so there were no interruptions. It's just that when you're dealing with the government everything takes a while.
