|Single person Medicaid Resource Allowance||$14,400|
|Community Spouse Resource Allowance (Maximum)||$115.920|
|Community Spouse Resource Allowance (Minimum)||$74,820|
|Community Spouse Resource Allowance (MMNA)||$2,898|
|Single/ Institutional Spouse Income Allowance||$50|
The CS is allowed to receive income of the IS to bring the CS up to the allowance of $2,898. The IS is still allowed $50. If the Couple’s combined income is less than $2,948 ($2,898 + $50), and they have assets greater than their combined resource allowances, the CS is entitled to an increased resource allowance. (Example: Combined income is $2,200 per month, and the couple’s countable assets are $35,00 over the allowance. Since the CS is $748 below the allowance ($2,948 – $2,000), the CS will be entitled to retain some or all if the $35,000 to make up the difference. BUT: A Fair Hearing will be required in order to keep the excess resources).
