Current through Register Vol.. 38, No. 17, April 11, 2022

A. If an individual and the spouse apply or are eligible for Medicaid as aged, blind, or disabled, and they cease to live together (separate), their income and resources are considered available (deemed) to each other for the time periods specified in this section. After the appropriate time period, income or resources actually contributed by the separated spouse to the individual are counted in determining the individual's eligibility.
B. Reserved.
C. If spouses separate for any reason other than institutionalization, their income and resources are deemed to each other during the month in which they cease to live together. When spouses cease to live together, their income and resources cease to be deemed to each other beginning the first month following the month the couple ceases to live together.
D. If only one spouse in a couple applies for Medicaid or only one meets the aged, blind, or disabled requirement, or if both spouses apply and are not eligible as a couple and they separate, only the income and resources of the separated spouse that are actually contributed to the individual are counted as available to the individual beginning with the month after the month in which they cease to live together.
