SUBJECT: HOME AND COMMUNITY BASED SERVICES (HCB) INCOME UPDATE
MANUAL REVISION #43
The Medical Assistance for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled (MHABD) manual has been updated to reflect a clarification of budgeting policy for HCB. The MHABD manual was previously updated to include several earned income deductions that do not apply to HCB.
HCB eligibility is based on an absolute income maximum. There are no income deductions prior to comparing the gross income of the HCB individual to the HCB income limit.
FAMIS does not allow any income deductions prior to comparing gross income to the HCB income limit.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
