Q) My 25 yr old son is currently on Medicaid in NY and is moving back to Texas. He is on dialysis and they will not cover his treatments in TX until he is approved for Medicaid. How can he get Medicaid in TX while still on Medicaid in NY. His treatments need to be covered the day after he moves home and he will not have his Medicaid yet. The center will not accept until he has already been approved. Please help.
