Make the following change(s)
ABD Change Notice 03-10 announced that effective January 1, 2010 the resource (asset) limits for the Medicare Savings Programs, known in North Carolina as the MQB programs, are the same as the resource limits for the Medicare Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) program. When the manual was revised to reflect this change, we neglected to include MA-2230, Financial Resources.
MA-2230, Financial Resources, is revised to reflect the change in the MQB resource limits from $2,000 for and individual and $3,000 for a couple to $6,600 for an individual and $9,910 for a couple.
This policy is effective January 1, 2010.
