This article is a section taken from Medicare Savings Programs (MSP), a part of the revisions and additions to the Minnesota Health Care Program Eligibility Policy Manual.
MSP Household Composition and Family Size
Household composition means the people included in a person’s household. Household composition determines the family size. Household composition and family size are factors used to determine financial eligibility.
Household composition and family size are determined for each person separately and may be different for each person on an application or in a household.
Medicare Savings Program Household Composition and Family Size
The Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) generally follow the standard Medical Assistance for People Who Are Age 65 or Older and People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD) Household Composition and Family Size policy.
Elderly Waiver Exception
An MSP applicant or enrollee receiving Elderly Waiver (EW) services is a household of one when determining MSP financial eligibility.
A spouse receiving EW services is not counted in an MSP applicant or enrollee’s household composition when the MSP applicant or enrollee is not on EW.
