The residency rules vary from state to state. Generally, you can move to a different state and become qualified for Medicaid in the new state. The things to ask about are the qualification regulations. MD may allow a person to have $3,000 and qualify but DE's limit may be $2,000. DE may not provide any benefit for assisted living. Some states do some do not. I would contact an attorney in DE to ask about the qualification requirements and the benefits available.
In this case I think a subsidy means Medicaid would pay for part of the cost but not all of it.
