Surgery outside the state that you live in on Medicaid?

My sister is on Medicare and Medicaid and lives in Alabama.  She needs spine surgery and has nobody to take care of her there.  Can I bring her to Florida where I live to have the surgery and would she be covered?  
Thank you

The coverage is nationwide. That being said, many hospitals prefer not to accept such patients. The thing to do is to check with the facility where you intend the surgery to be done. You don't specify the kind of "spinal" surgery either. It is preferable to get such surgery performed at a teaching hospital or by a surgeon who has done a lot of the procedures.
