Appeal 1009605

Fair Hearing Decision 1009605

Community spouse has gross monthly income of $1,061.50 and MassHealth has calculated an MMMNA of $2,191.00; regulations dictate MassHealth consider the institutionalized spouse’s income for the community spouse when there is a shortfall between the community spouse’s income and the MMMNA; appellant or institutional spouse has income of $1,628.52 (after subtraction of the appellant’s health insurance of $113.20 and his personal needs allowance of $72.80); community spouse retains $1,129.50 of the institutional spouse income to meet the MMMNA; the PPA is correct.
