Consider as available resources anything that is considered under the December 1973 eligibility requirements for OAA or PTD. Refer to section 1030.000.00 of the December 1973 Eligibility Requirements Manual.

The available resource maximum for eligibility based on receipt of HCB waiver services is:

  • the appropriate single individual amount for an individual
  • the appropriate single individual amount for the HCB spouse in a married couple (the HCB spouse is treated as a single person case)
  • the appropriate couple resource limit for a married couple, if both members of the couple have been determined to require HCB waiver services.

EXAMPLE: Mr. and Mrs. Barrett both apply for MHABD on July 15, 2018. Mr. Barrett is authorized by DHSS/DSDS for HCB waiver services. When determining eligibility for MHABD based on HCB criteria, Mr. Barrett’s resource limit is $3000.00. When determining eligibility for regular MHABD, Mrs. Barrett’s resource limit is also $3000.00.

EXAMPLE: Mr. and Mrs. Jones both apply for MHABD on August 1, 2018. Both are authorized by DHSS/DSDS for HCB waiver services. When determining eligibility for MHABD based on HCB criteria, use the couple resource limit of $6000.00.
