Some people insist on listening to "Fake" Info and "Alternative" facts. How NaÔve they are......
Some people are unhappy, even with all the money their online personnas have.

Massachusetts said he won't be back for a YEAR ...yet he's taking one of our three visitor spots up with the spare car. Go figure.
I would think a tow truck would solve that problem.

It depends.

Let's say you're interested in living part of the year (but less than half) in California.

Here are the rules from the California Franchise Tax Board for filing tax forms in California for Non-Residents and Part-Time Residents: https://www.ftb.ca.gov/forms/2016/16_540nrbk.pdf

....
While you may get access to these specialties, not all have the funds or coverage to access this level of care.

Don't know where you have lived / visited and needed care, But in my WW working and traveling needs in the last 40 yrs, Only China has been worse than the USA for Quality of care. (Canada was a close second to being worse than USA, but YMMV.)

Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Greece, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, UK, Portugal, France, Singapore, Australia and NZ all delivered fine when I or my family needed care. (and MUCH faster service than USA, even as a new patient (UK excluded for speed)) But... I'm just a pauper, so don't raise the interest of USA HC facilities.

There are many viable options outside USA (which is not viable for most).

Thank you for this. I'll have to hunt around for the 2017 version. Retired last year and moved after the first three months in CA to a different state.

Note that the California Franchise Tax Board is used to people claiming residence in low-tax or no-tax states but actually staying quite a bit in CA. They then go after such people at tax time if those people don't pay up. The FTB not only looks for tax cheats, but also for people who, they can argue, haven't fully left CA.

You should make sure you've done a variety of things to establish residency for tax purposes in your new state. For example, you should register to vote and you should re-register your vehicles for start. You should acquire new physicians and dentists and other professionals rather than travel back to CA if possible. You should establish banking and brokerage relationships in your new state and use ATMs in your new state. Keep records of any time you traveled back to CA and returned to your new state. These may come in handy 2 or 3 years from now if CA comes looking for their unfair share.

You are presumptuous thinking we moved here for financial reasons. You are wrong. Which makes me wonder how many other opinions you have posted here and elsewhere are based on nothing, other your own myoptic insular view.
We live in Jupiter Fl and it takes over a month to see a specialist. Meanwhile my wife suffers in pain of all her joints because under the BC/BS we have to see him. Healthcare in Florida is not as great as you think.

You just live in a not so good HC zone. We trip over doctors. Specialist I can see in a week, Heart, Bones, Gastric, Eye. GP is usually within less than a week. I just scheduled an Eye Exam on Monday for Wednesday morning this week.

Look at the Stats, Collier, Sarasota,Miami Dade & St. Johns have the best health care stats in Florida. No need to get nasty because you do not like the facts of other areas, it is not my fault we have good stats. Shhhhhhh....
