MassHealth Imposing Asset Limit on Community Spouse of Frail Elder Waiver Applicants in Fall 2016

We anticipate a significant change coming this fall for married elders seeking eligibility for the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver in Massachusetts.  The Commonwealth is very likely to begin imposing an asset limit of $119,220 for the community spouse of HCBS waivers.  There is currently no asset limit for the community spouse of applicants for the HCBS waiver.  This will apply to new HCBS applicants and HCBS waiver applicants who started receiving benefits beginning January 1, 2014. 

If you are married and your spouse began receiving HCBS waiver services after January 1, 2014, and you have more than $119,220 in assets, your spouse may no longer receive HCBS waiver services come this fall.

If this applies to you, please call Patricia C. D’Agostino at (617) 267-9700, ext. 562 to discuss this further.
