I have Medicaid. I’m seriously thinking of moving to Georgia.

I am thinking of staying at my daughters house until this virus is gone. I have Medicaid and food stamps. I’m seriously thinking of moving to Georgia. I don’t what I should do

A) Medicaid is a joint federal and state program with each state governing their own program. If you move you will need to reapply for Medicaid in Georgia.

To participate in Medicaid, federal law requires states to cover certain groups of individuals. Low-income families, qualified pregnant women and children, and individuals receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are examples of mandatory eligibility groups (PDF, 177.87 KB) . States have additional options for coverage and may choose to cover other groups, such as individuals receiving home and community-based services and children in foster care who are not otherwise eligible.

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 created the opportunity for states to expand Medicaid to cover nearly all low-income Americans under age 65. Eligibility for children was extended to at least 133% of the federal poverty level (FPL) in every state (most states cover children to higher income levels), and states were given the option to extend eligibility to adults with income at or below 133% of the FPL. Most states have chosen to expand coverage to adults, and those that have not yet expanded may choose to do so at any time. See if your state has expanded Medicaid coverage to low-income adults. https://www.medicaid.gov/medicaid/eligibility/index.html
