These regulations revise current Medicaid rules for determining financial eligibility and the level of Medicaid payments for institutional care for aged, blind, and disabled individuals, when one spouse is institutionalized and the other spouse is not. The change will affect those States that, as permitted by statute, use more restrictive eligibility criteria than those applied nationally under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. It will also apply in Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
