N-6100, Budgeting Concepts

Revision 22-3; Effective September 1, 2022

Medicaid Buy-In for Children (MBIC) has two budgeting concepts: family unit and budget group.

Family unit is used to determine the appropriate federal poverty level (FPL) to use as an income limit. Budget group is used to determine the countable income of the family unit to compare to the FPL for eligibility.

The total number of members in the family unit is used in eligibility income budgeting to determine the income limit for the family.
