IM-31 04/29/94 CLARIFICATION OF QMB/SLMB/QDWI POLICY
|CLARIFICATION OF QMB/SLMB/QDWI POLICY|
|Based on a recent federal review of our
QMB program, we are changing several policies related to real property
and institutional residence for QMB, SLMB, and QDWI.
Real Property - RSMo 40-2.030; Chapter XI, Section V, page 2
The above referenced regulation at item (A) deals with real property in which the applicant or recipient has lived, and the subsequent application of the 24-month rule when the individual leaves the property. If a non-institutionalized claimant expresses the intent to return to the principle place of residence at any time, do not consider the property an available resource for QMB, SLMB, or QDWI at the expiration of the 24 month period. If the claimant does not intend to return to the property, consider the property available at the end of the 24 month period. Accept the claimant's statement of intent.
The 24-month rule has not changed for all other programs.
On page 2 of Chapter XI, Section V, note in ink that the 24-month rule is changed for QMB, SLMB, and QDWI, as explained in this memorandum.
Institutional Residence - RSMo 40-2.080; Chapter XI, Section III, page 3

On page 3 of Chapter XI, Section III, note in ink that items (A), (B), and (C) do not apply to QMB, SLMB, or QDWI.
Begin applying these changed policies to the QMB, SLMB, and QDWI programs with receipt of this memorandum.
