FROM: PATRICK LUEBBERING, DIRECTORSUBJECT: REASONABLE COMPATIBILITY WITH MORE THAN ONE INCOME IN THE HOUSEHOLDMANUAL REVISION #7
The purpose of this memorandum is to clarify policy regarding reasonable compatibility when there is more than one income in a household.
EXAMPLE: Husband and wife apply for their children’s coverage. Mom has one source of income and dad has one source of income.
We have added manual section 1805.030.15.10 Reasonable Compatibility with More Than One Income in the Household to clarify what to do when comparing self-attested combined income and electronically obtained combined income (EOI) and:
- One statement of combined income (EOI or self-attested) is below the income guideline and one statement of combined income (EOI or self-attested) is above the guideline; and
- the difference between the two (2) statements of income is greater than 10%
- Review this memorandum and manual revision with appropriate staff.
