Monthly income and countable resource standards for medically needy (MN).

(1) Changes to the medically needy income level (MNIL) occur on January 1st of each calendar year when the Social Security Administration (SSA) issues a cost-of-living adjustment.
(2) Medically needy (MN) standards for people who meet institutional status requirements are in WAC 182-513-1395. The standard for a client who lives in an alternate living facility is in WAC 182-513-1305.
(3) The resource standards for institutional programs are in WAC 182-513-1350. The institutional standard chart is found at: http://www.dshs.wa.gov/manuals/eaz/sections/LongTermCare/LTCstandardspna.shtml.

(5) People who do not meet institutional status requirements use the "effective" MNIL income standard to determine eligibility for the MN program. The "effective" MNIL is the one-person federal benefit rate (FBR) established by SSA each year, or the MNIL listed below, whichever amount is higher. The FBR is the supplemental security income (SSI) payment standard. For example, in 2012, the FBR is six hundred ninety-eight dollars.
