Allowable medical costs of more than $35 per month which are excluded from income include:
- Most medical costs, such as doctor bills, prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication when approved by a doctor, dentures, inpatient and outpatient hospital expenses and nursing care. Other medically-related expenses, such as certain transportation cists, attendant care and health insurance premiums are also included.
Call the Department of Social Services for information about when, where and how to apply.
