To determine countable monthly income for CountyCare, as with Family Health Plans, deduct the following items, in the order listed, from the unit's nonexempt monthly income:

  • allowable business expenses for self-employed persons (see PM 15-04-02-b);
  • $90 employment deduction for each employed person;
  • earned income exemption (see PM 15-04-02-c for the appropriate amount); and
  • spousal or child support that was paid to someone not in the unit (see PM 15-04-02-f).

Who to Include in the Standard

When a household includes a son or daughter age 19 or older living with their parents, set up a separate case for the son or daughter of the parent.  Only a spouse may be included in the person's CountyCare standard.
