Does anyone know if PA or NY state insurance will cover treatment in CA? A friend of mine was kidnapped and raped in NY state, and is on state insurance, and will be coming to us in CA for a safe haven for awhile. We want to make sure she can get treatment here, and that it will be covered. She doesn't have any money, and neither do we (we're on MediCal, and are going to try to get her on it, too, if she's here long enough).
Also, does anyone know how long someone has to be in a state to qualify for state insurance there? We have NO idea how long she's staying. Could be a couple of days, could be permanent, could be anything in between, but I'm guessing at least a couple of weeks.
I'm going to be contacting one of the programs here that's through a local hospital to see if they will take her state insurance as well. But this is a big gray area, so any advice anyone has would be much appreciated! Thanks!
