Consider nonreimbursable medical bills as follows:
- Expense Incurred More Than Once
Consider medical expenses greater than $35 for the month that it is anticipated that the expense will be billed or otherwise become due.
Consider the current monthly billing for an installment payment plan as a medical expense. Do not allow amounts carried forward from prior billing periods, even if included on the most recent month's billing.
- Onetime Only Expenses
If a SNAP unit using actual medical expenses instead of a Standard Medical Deduction reports a onetime only medical expense during the approval period, the unit may choose to:
- have a onetime only deduction, or
- have the expense averaged over the remaining months of the approval period.
