At this time, the $300 unemployment insurance benefits under the Lost Wages Assistance Program is considered exempt for all medical programs.
The Lost Wages Assistance Program will be available for eligible claimants until the balance of the Disaster Relief Fund reaches the maximum allotted ($25 billion), or for weeks of unemployment ending no later than December 6, 2020, whichever occurs first, at which time the Lost Wages Assistance Program will terminate.
