7 AAC 47.155. Determination of General Relief Medical financial eligibility

(a) Financial eligibility for General Relief Medical assistance exists only if the household's monthly net income, as determined under this section, does not exceed the need standard in 7 AAC 47.150(b) . The applicant must provide verification of the household's income, including, for example, tax and wage statements.

(b) Except as provided in (c) of this section and in 7 AAC 47.170(b) , persons who are included in the household and who will therefore have their financial needs, income, and resources considered in determining financial eligibility, include the applicant and all persons related to the applicant by blood, marriage, or adoption who, at the time of application, have continuously resided with the applicant for a period of 30 days or more and who do not maintain a separate residence from the applicant.

(c) Persons who are receiving a cash assistance grant from Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Adult Public Assistance, or Supplemental Security Income will not have their financial needs, income, or resources considered in determining the General Relief Medical assistance applicant's financial eligibility.

(d) Monthly net income is determined by

(1) counting all income earned or unearned, from any source, except Alaska Permanent Fund Dividends received during the calendar month in which application is made; (to determine monthly income, income received weekly is multiplied by 4.3, that received every two weeks by 2.15, that received twice monthly by 2, and that received monthly by 1);

(2) subtracting all payroll deductions required by the employer, including federal and state income tax, FICA, unemployment insurance, union dues, insurance premiums, and retirement, from gross earned income, and subtracting from earned or unearned income voluntary health insurance premiums which are paid for persons included in the household as described in (b) of this section; and
