This article is a section taken from MA for People Who Are Age 65 or Older or People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD), a part of the revisions and additions to the Minnesota Health Care Program Eligibility Policy Manual.
An income methodology is the way a person’s income is evaluated to determine if they meet the income limit for a program. The methodology includes, but is not limited to whether an income source is counted, deemed to another person, disregarded, deducted or excluded.
This subchapter provides the methods for evaluating income in determining a person’s eligibility under Medical Assistance for People Who Are Age 65 or Older or People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD). These policies also apply to Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) with some exceptions. See the MSP chapter for more information.
