Appeal 1004772

Fair Hearing Decision 1004772

Although MassHealth’s calculation was correct using the life expectancy table that it did, it was incorrect to ignore the appellant’s life expectancy table from Aviva; MassHealth was presented with a copy of the Aviva table and, without sufficient justification, refused to apply it; this is not acceptable, as a life expectancy table from an annuity company cannot be disregarded for the sole reason that it affords a better outcome for a client; rather it must be afforded “due weight.”
