Losing Spouse/Parent

questions & answers

Question: If an elderly person gets ill and a family member moves them to a hospital in another state, are they be considered a resident of the new state?

Answer: The residency requirements for each state are different. Additionally, the reason one is considered a "resident" may have different requirements. For example, to obtain Medicaid benefits in Arizona (ALTCS) one need only have an "intent to remain in Arizona." You need to figure out whether you need the person to be a resident and then find out the rules in your state.
