Relocating anywhere comes with complications, and relocating to another state adds new moving parts like learning tax codes and planning for a different cost of living — not to mention some of the emotional stress that comes with leaving behind a familiar place.   Don’t worry, though.   Migrating to a new state can and should be a positive and exciting experience. If you’re moving to the Northeast Ohio region from another part of the country, or you’re getting ready to venture out of the greater Cleveland area for the first time, here are some tips to help you have a smooth transition into your new life and home!   Find a New Doctor Do you know where you’re going to go if you get sick or injured? Are local doctor’s offices in your company’s insurance network?   Nobody plans for a big injury or virus to hit when they’re first moving into a new home, but researching who your new doctor will be in advance is a good thing to have lined up early.   Not sure where to get started?   If you have health insurance, start by asking for a list of in-network physicians for your primary care.
