Medi-Cal Income Eligibility Limitations for nursing home residency requires that the applicant’s monthly countable income must be less than the nursing home’s monthly private-pay rate.
In 2015, the spouse of a Medi-Cal recipient living in a nursing home (called the "community spouse") may keep as much as $119,220.00 without jeopardizing the Medi-Cal Eligibility of the spouse who is receiving long-term care. This is called the "community spouse resource allowance". This is the most that the state may allow a community spouse to retain without a hearing or a court order.
Furthermore, so that the community spouse is not impoverished, the community spouse is entitled to retain a minimum amount of monthly income, defined as the "Minimum Monthly Maintenance Needs Allowance".
For 2015, the present California Minimum Monthly Maintenance Needs Allowance (MMMNA) is $2,931.00 per month.
