Make sure you give the VA a change of address for claim and the appeal. Make sure they change the address for both. You can do it on the 1-800 number. Because you move does not change the jurisdication of the claim. If you want it worked at the office it is in now, just state so. Good luck on your move.

Small addition... Your claim file will move automatically if your VARO decides you need an exam. Your regional office will permanently transfer the file out to the RO in your new jurisdiction. Also, the fact that you have a current Appeal may get your file transferred anyway.

Exams can be ordered by your current RO, but generally only if you are on a temporary trip, move, etc. Just tell the RO if you want it transferred.

Also, as Sharon said. You MUST change your address with the RO and with the VA Hospital separately. They are two different beasts, and it can delay your claims/Appeal badly if you don't update your address.
