Consider the alternatives when making a decision to move to another state.
Medicaid waivers vary from state to state. If an individual receives waiver services in Virginia and then moves to another state, he or she will lose the Virginia waiver funding. The person must reapply for waiver services in their new home state. (Exceptions to this policy are made only in the case of individuals placed out of state by the Virginia services network). It is important to consider the alternatives when making a decision to move to another state. Your case manager can give you information to assist you with this decision.
