MANUAL REVISION #29 CHAPTER VI, PAGE 79
|The "threshold amount" established by
the Social Security Administration (SSA) to determine 1619 eligibility
is increased to $1840.00 monthly.
The threshold amount is only used by DFS to identify 1619 cases in the IMU5 system. When determining continued Medicaid eligibility for 1619 cases, there is no income limit for claimants granted SSA 1619 status.
Effective with receipt of this memorandum, enter $1840.00 as the expense amount in Field 33 of IMU5 for 1619 cases. For cases currently receiving Medicaid using 1619 criteria, update the amount in Field 33 at the next regular contact with the claimant.
