My sister-in-law is an illegal immigrant. Her daughter was born in the U.S. She had a small intestinal transplant while in the U.S. in which emergency Medicaid covered her expenses. She lives in California and all her family lives in Florida . Can she get legal status so she can receive Medicaid coverage in Florida so that she can receive the medical treatment she desperately needs?
Sorry ... the answer most likely is no.
