If a resident of an SLF is a qualifying member who receives Medical assistance, the amount of the SLF medical expense is the SLF credit amount. This amount is Item 80 code 395 GCARE on Form 552. Code Item 80 352 code with the Standard Medical Deduction for a resident of a group home/SLF, see PM 13-01-05 . If the qualifying member chooses actual medical expenses instead of the Standard Medical Deduction, add the SLF medical expense to any other allowable medical expense to get the total medical expense to budget as code 352 TME for SNAP. Refer to PM 13-01-05-a for a listing of other allowable medical expenses.
