To determine initial eligibility under Moms & Babies, use Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) budgeting methodology. Use the FHP income policy in PM 15-04-02. To determine who to include in the standard, see PM 15-06-01-f. Always count the number of babies expected toward any EDG in which the pregnant woman is counted.
If countable monthly income exceeds the Moms & Babies Income Standard, decide eligibility for Family Health Spenddown per PM 15-06-01-e. A pregnant woman cannot spend down to the Moms & Babies standard.
