Does Medicaid cover out of state hospitalization

My mother lives in New Jersey and has both Medicare part B and Medicaid. She is planning on visiting my sister in upstate New York. In case of emergency, does Medicaid cover her medical bills in NY.??

Dear Pari390,

Since Medicaid is administered jointly by the state and federal governments, each individual state has its own rules regarding out-of-state Medicaid coverage. To find out the extend of Out of State coverage in your state (NJ), please call 1-800-356-1561.
