Q) I just moved to El Paso, TX from Florida where I had Medicaid for myself and two daughters. Can it be switched over to Texas?
A) No, you cannot switch your Medicaid coverage from Florida to Texas. Medicaid is a state-funded program, and each state has its own eligibility requirements and benefits. When you move to a new state, you must apply for Medicaid in that state.
