Q) I have a special needs son on Medicaid in Louisiana and he is moving to sitka to live with us. How do i transfer his Medicaid to sitka?
A) Medicaid is governed by each individual state. Each state is given the flexibility to set their own eligibility requirements. Therefore, each state evaluates its applicants independently from each other state. Those wishing to transfer their coverage must re-apply for Medicaid in the new state. You will need to reapply for Medicaid in your new state.
