SUBJECT: AMOUNT OF MEDICAL DEDUCTION SECTION OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP) MANUAL UPDATED
MANUAL REVISION #
The Amount of Medical Deduction section of the SNAP manual was updated to remove a reference to an obsolete procedural guide, which contained outdated and incorrect information. The Excess Medical Deduction, the Medical Expense Standard, and the Standard Medical Deduction as calculated by the eligiblity system policy has been clarified and the examples updated.
Terminology (such as EU, Food Stamps, and references to FAMIS) was also updated throughout the section.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
