Maintaining Medical Assistance thru Transition

One of the most aggravating systems to navigate is the application/renewal process for Medical Assistance. When my children moved into their adult years, the amount of hassle and paperwork to keep their Medical Assistance active was overwhelming.

 

There are some disabilities that are simply never going to change. Why then do we have to reapply for Medical Assistance insurance just because they changed in age from 17 to 18? There needs to be a way to move those individuals from the "kids" Medical Assistance to "adults" Medical Assistance without starting completely over.
