Medical Assistance Materials

The Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities is working with the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance to promote change to the Medical Assistance Disability Spenddown.

How does one live on $792 a month and $3,000 in savings? Review the
MA Fact sheet and read stories about Rik and Rebecca.

The solution – HF225/SF250
Proposes changes to Medical Assistance Disability Policy so people can:

  • Keep $990 a month of their social security income
  • Keep $10,000 of their savings

This allows people with disabilities on MA Disability to pay their bill and live independently.
