6513.04 Spenddown Met - When the total spenddown has been satisfied, the spenddown is considered met for the base period. Bills used to meet the spenddown remain the responsibility of the individual. A combination of accounting methods may be used to actually meet the spenddown. However, the bills used to meet the spenddown are not altered unless the new expenses are listed in 6513.01 above, items a - d or if the last bill used to meet the spenddown was a non-Medicaid covered expense. In this case, if other Medicaid-covered bills have already been applied, the non-Medicaid covered expenses shall be used in full, thus making the Medicaid -covered expenses potentially eligible for reimbursement.

When the spenddown is met, the fiscal agent will produce an itemize list of expenses used to meet the spenddown. The list will not include those expenses listed in 6513.01, items a - d. A copy of this notice will be sent to the assigned eligibility worker.
