We had to move my folks here after Mom ended up in the hospital. They had always paid the ambulance service for "something", but it cut our transfer bill to 100$ for a 100 mile trip from Pa to MD. From hospital to a rehab near our house. I called our family dr ( a geri specialst) and he took my folks on with no problem.. look into that. The rehab set Mom up with cardiologist I wanted.. no problem there either. I got new caregivers for Dad with a local agency.. worked out great. It can be done.. just check things out in advance if you can. Call your Dr first and see if he can help. It's been a year now, mom out of rehab and Dad doing well. Not perfect, but perfectly doable!

If this is Medicaid, find out if the other state has a long waiting list. Medicare and Medicaid rules vary from state to state, and it can turn into a real nightmare if you just up and go. Transport by ambulance is hugely expensive and not covered. Find a new MD can be difficult, many will not take Medicaid. Get all your ducks in a row.
