Current through December 2, 2021

(a) To be eligible for Medicaid in this state an applicant must be a resident of the state.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in (c) in this section, a resident of the state is an individual who is physically present in the state and living in the state voluntarily with the intent to remain in the state permanently or for an indefinite period of time. The department will determine if an individual is a resident of the state using the methodology established in 42 C.F.R. 435.403, revised as of October 1, 2005, and adopted by reference.
(c) An individual currently in the state who plans to leave the state after a short period of time, including a migrant worker, is a resident of the state for the purposes of Medicaid if that individual
(1) lives in the state on the date of application;
(2) is not receiving public assistance from another state; and
(3) entered the state with employment, or the intent to find employment, regardless of whether the individual is actually employed at the time of application.
(d) An applicant or recipient is not required to have a permanent mailing address as a condition of eligibility. If an applicant or recipient does not have a permanent mailing address, the applicant or recipient must keep the department informed of a mailing address at which the applicant or recipient can receive mail. The department will deliver any correspondence and the recipient's Medicaid identification card to the most recent address provided by the applicant or recipient.
(e) Once an applicant establishes state residency, the applicant retains state residency until the applicant establishes residency in another place.
