H-3000, Averaging and Reconciliation

Revision 13-4; Effective December 1, 2013

HHSC averages monthly income that is predictable but varies in amount from month to month. Types of monthly income that require averaging include, but are not limited to, earned income, royalty income and interest income.

Variable income can be from one source or a combination of sources.

For eligibility budgets, treatment of variable income is the same for all cases. Treatment of variable income in co-payment budgets differs from the eligibility budgets and applies only to community-based waiver and institutional cases.

There are additional treatments for variable income for the co-payment budgets that include reconciliation and restitution.

The examples in this section are for demonstration purposes only. They may not reflect the current spousal allowance amounts.
