0820.035.00 HCB and QMB

If a spend down individual has previously declined QMB due to its effect on the spend down amount and is now eligible under HCB waiver criteria, approve a QMB application at the same time the HCB application is approved. There will be no adverse effect to this action. It is not necessary to have the individual sign a new application form, although an application for QMB must be entered through IAPP.
