A qualifying member's medical expenses in excess of $35 are an allowable deduction.
See WAG 13-01-05 for complete information on the medical expense deduction.
For SNAP units with a qualifying member, see WAG 13-01-03-a for the special treatment of the unit's expenses.
When determining eligibility for these units, except for categorically eligible units, only use the Net Monthly Income Standard (see WAG 13-01-01-b). Categorically eligible units do not have to meet a net income test, but are ineligible if net income is above the level where benefits are issued.
