Standard Medical Deduction Example 3
Larry applies for NA and is interviewed on 07/01/2055.
Larry is 60 years of age and has a monthly medical out-of-pocket expense of $30. Larry provides verification of the expense during the interview.
The worker uses the Standard Medical Deduction Worksheet (FAA‑1813A) to explain to Larry that because he does not have more than $35 in medical expenses that the SMD or actual monthly medical out of pocket expense cannot be deducted from his income.
NOTE The total monthly out of pocket expenses do not exceed the $35 disregard therefore, a deduction is not given.
