Can I Move and Keep Medicaid Benefits?

I receive Medicaid due to disability in one state.  How long can I be out of state before losing Medicaid benefits?

Medicaid is available in all 50 states, although the eligibility rules (including the amount of time you can spend out of state before losing benefits) vary widely from state to state.  If you are moving you can contact your state's Medicaid agency directly to try and figure this out, or, better yet, contact a qualified special needs planner in your new area.
