Question
A friend of mine wants to move from CA. to TX to get out of an abusive relationship and situation from her father. She has a lot of health issues and is on Medicare/MediCal there. What does she need to do to make her transition as smooth as possible to get her insurance coverage in TX. Does she need to see someone here at the TX health and human services or is there a number she can call to get it done by phone. Please advise. I will be helping her make this transaction but need to know the guidelines.
Thank you

Answer
Hi Stacy!

Each state has different laws regarding their Medicaid program so only thing to do is to either visit their website or call them to find out. She probably will have to requalify for
Texas's Medicaid program.  May be able to do on line not sure.  

Good Luck!

Has your medical insurance company denied your claim and refuses to pay? Have you received a pre-authorization and still your insurance company refuses to pay? How can you get your insurance company to reverse a denied claim? How do you get a provider to waive your copayment if you are financially unable to pay? Can a provider sue you for a unpaid bill and will they? Can a provider send me to a collection agency for a medical bill? If my insurance company does not pay, am I responsible? If you have these questions or others on why your insurance company is not paying your bills, I can help. I can give you "tricks of the trade" to get your insurance company to pay. I have limited knowledge on Medicare and Medicaid and that is not my expertise. Each state is very different regarding Medicare and Medicaid so you need to review their website when you have questions. So please no Medicare or Medicaid questions!!
