Effective July 1, 2005, the non-spend down income maximum is 85% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for both single individuals and married couples with eligibility based on OAA and PTD criteria.

Effective July 1, 2004, the non-spend down income maximum is 100% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for both single individuals and married couples with eligibility based on AB criteria. The change in state law that lowered the income limit for determinations based on OAA or PTD did not affect determinations based on AB.

Before October 1, 2002, the MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled (MHABD) Income Limits were the current SSI Maximums for both single individuals and married couples. From October 1, 2002, through September 30, 2003, the non-spend down income maximum for an individual was 80% of the federal poverty level (FPL). During this period the couple limit was the SSI maximum as it exceeded 80% FPL. From October 1, 2003 through June 30, 2004, the non-spend down income maximum was 90% of the Federal Poverty Limit (FPL) for both single individuals and married couples. From July 1, 2004 through June 30, 2005, the non-spend down income maximum was 100% of the Federal Poverty Limit (FPL) for both single individuals and married couples based with eligibility based on OAA, PTD, or AB criteria.
