Q) I have a special needs son on Medicaid in Louisiana that is moving to sitka to live with us. How do i transfer his Medicaid from Louisiana to sitka, Alaska?
A) With Medicaid each state evaluates its applicants independently from each other state. While Medicaid is often thought of as a federal program, each state is given the flexibility to set their own eligibility requirements. Therefore, if you wish to transfer your son’s coverage you must re-apply for Medicaid in the new state.
