The QMB resource standard is $7,280 for a single person and $10,930 for a person with one or more dependents. Resource limits for MSP may change each year. Refer to WAG 25-03-02.
See PM 07-02-00 (AABD) for determining resources.
Spenddown does not apply to QMB. When nonexempt resources are higher than the QMB standard, the person is not eligible for QMB benefits. For AABD, any resource intended to be transferred to a community spouse, but not actually transferred, are available and apply to the QMB resource standard.
