My sister and I want to move my 93 year old mom from a nursing home in Virginia to a nursing home close to us in South Carolina. She has been approved by Medicaid VA. Can this be done? And what do we need to do to do it?

Her medicaid Coverage is only valid in the state of VA so.....she will have to become a resident of South Carolina & apply for Medicaid there. She should be eligible for it in SC without a problem. You should probably start finding a new nursing home in your state if you hadn’t done so already. Once you pick one, there should be a social worker there who can help you with Medicaid eligibility & getting her down to SC. How do you plan to move her? Is she able to ambulate? Can you afford to pay a Medical transport company? Neither Medicaid or Medicare will pay to transport her to South Carolina.
