For an AABD Medical client applying for or receiving DoA services with a community spouse, a Community Spenddown case is one where the client:
If nonexempt assets are greater than $10,500 (after allowing for the CSAA) or countable income to apply to medical care costs is greater than $1,800 (after allowing for the CSMNA or the FMNA), do not treat the person as applying for or receiving DoA
services. Complete a 2nd determination using the appropriate Community Standard, rather than the one-person standard. Refer to PM 15-06-02-d.
