NOT what you may think... my ex inlaws are both disabled and have state insurance bc they can not afford private ins. they want to move 400 miles away.... close to me and dd. we love them and would LOVE them moving here but they have almost 1000 in just meds a month... heart meds diabetes pain meds ect. and they couldnt afford it if they had to pay out of pocket for 6 months or whatever to apply in the state we are in (KY)... does anyone know if there is a way to transfer the state insurance to here? is that even possible?




 they want to move here to be closer to us plus i can take care of them if they get even sicker. my exfil has NOTHING to do with my xh. fil says im his daughter and he doesnt have a son (AWEEEEEEEEEE i really love them like they are my own parents)

I wouldn't think it would transfer. They would probably have to apply in your state.

 Have them call their disability case worker and ask how it works? IDK.

If they have Medicare then yes, that transfer so to speak but the have to notify social security of the move. If they have state funded such as Medicaid then no, they would have to reapply in their new state/county.

Do they have Medicaid or Medicare


How to Transfer Medicare to Another State

How to Transfer Medicare to Another State thumbnail
Parts of Medicare will automatically transfer when the recipient moves to another state.

Medicare is a health insurance plan run by the United States government and offered to citizens who meet specific requirements. For example, American citizens with a permanent disability and those older than 65 are generally eligible to receive benefits. There are four parts of Medicare --- parts A, B, C and D. The majority of recipients benefit from parts A and B automatically, but parts C and D are voluntary and supplemental benefits paid for by the recipients themselves. When a person enrolled in Medicare moves from one state to another, his original Medicare (parts A and B) automatically transfer with him upon notice, but any supplemental coverage must be transferred through the program providers. Have a question? Get an answer from a Medical Professional now!

Things You'll Need

  • Medicare policy

Instructions

    • 1

      Notify your local office of the Social Security Administration of your change in address as soon as possible. Since most Medicare benefits are distributed electronically, your payments should not be interrupted when you move. However, the administration will need to change the mailing address for important future mailings about your benefits, such as increases and explanation of benefit forms. Visit the Social Security website to find the nearest location or contact information (see "Resources").

    • 2

      Visit the website of your supplemental policy provider if you are enrolled in a Part C or D plan. This includes a supplemental drug prescription program or Medicare Advantage plan. Look up information on your policy to see if it is available to residents of the zip code to which you are moving. Make notes of any plans that are available in your new state that are similar to the plan in which you are currently enrolled.

    • 3

      Call your supplemental policy provider's customer service line. Verify whether your current policy is valid in the state to which you are moving and what your provider's requirements are to transfer the policy if it is still valid. Most plans are state specific, however. If the plan does not transfer, ask for referrals to other plans in the provider's network within that state as well as contact information. Request to transfer your current enrollment to a new policy. If your plan does not transfer, request information on how to cancel it.

Tips & Warnings

  • Medicare parts C and D plans follow strict enrollment guidelines. Depending upon your situation, you might be unable to immediately enroll in a new policy if your current policy does not transfer. Ask for an account specialist or Medicare specialist through your policy provider to see if any exceptions apply.

Call your state health office. You don't have to wait 6 months to apply for Medicaid.

point is there is no waiting period. But you need to make sure your state actually offers medi caid for adults.
