Spousal Impoverishment Expansion ACWDL 17-25 Released

The Department of Health Care Services released ACWDL 17-25, expanding spousal impoverishment provisions for Home and Community-Based services (HCBS). HCBS waiver programs are for seniors or persons with disabilities who want to stay at home or within their community and who are at high risk for nursing home placement. When one spouse in a married couple applies for an approved HCBS program, the spousal impoverishment provisions apply.
