Simulation of Medicaid and SCHIP Eligibility: Implications of Findings From 10 States. Final Report.. 4. Other Disregards


With some exceptions, few states had other significant disregards.13 Connecticut's TANF program raised the irregular gift disregard to $200 per year, but the Medicaid programs use only a $30 yearly disregard for irregular gifts. The Medicaid program in New Jersey disregards all alimony payments. In California, the 1931 Medicaid program and the Medicaid expansion programs (poverty and M-SCHIP) disregard all dependent care expenses from earned income. In Colorado, the S-SCHIP program disregards all medical bills due and payable in the next 12 months.
