Medicaid Spend-Down Limit Changes

Effective July 1, 2023, the Medicaid Resource (Spend-Down) Limit increased to $5,726.00. Please see the link

Please note that for Medicaid/Medicare certified facilities, F569 states the facility must notify each resident/legal guardian that receives Medicaid benefits when the amount in the resident’s account reaches $200 less than the SSI resource limit. This means certified facilities should notify the resident/legal guardian when the resident’s personal funds are $5,526.00 or higher.
