If the client's income exceeds the AABD Cash Assistance Standard, determine Medical eligibility. Use the AABD Cash Assistance Standard as the client's Medical Income Standard.

NOTE: If the client pays a SMIB premium, add the premium amount to the Medical income standard.

If monthly nonexempt income exceeds the Medical standard for a client receiving sheltered care, or personal or nursing care, the case is a Community Spenddown case and not a Long Term Care Spenddown case (see PM 15-08-01).
