12VAC30-110-900. Resource eligibility determinations in retroactive months.

A. First application for medical assistance. In each of the three months preceding an institutionalized spouse's first application for medical assistance in the current continuous period of institutionalization for which resource eligibility is to be determined, the community spouse protected resource amount shall be deducted from the couple's combined countable resources held on the first moment of the first day of each retroactive month.

B. Later applications for medical assistance when medical assistance eligibility was established previously. If an individual established medical assistance eligibility as an institutionalized spouse during a period of institutionalization that began on or after September 30, 1989, regardless of whether the period of institutionalization is the same continuous period covered by the previous application, resources owned by the community spouse are not considered in determining the institutionalized spouse's medical assistance eligibility.

C. Later applications for medical assistance when Virginia medical assistance eligibility was not previously established. Regardless of whether previous medical assistance applications have been submitted, if an individual has never established medical assistance eligibility as an institutionalized spouse, the application shall be treated in the same manner as the first application.
