Effective 02/04/2022

Regulation Authority:

Chapters 40-6 and 40-8 of the Rhode Island General Laws
as amended; Title XIX of the Social Security Act

Purpose and Reason:

Certain Medicaid income and resource standards are adjusted annually in accordance with changes in the SSI federal benefit rate (FBR) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI). These include some of the standards described in section 1924 of the Social Security Act (the Act), which describes the financial eligibility rules (the “spousal impoverishment rules”) that apply when married individuals seek coverage of certain long-term services and supports.  Each January, updates must be made to the SSI benefits in order to reflect the annual COLA adjustments.  

 Amendments:

These amendments reflect the 2022 COLA updates that are in effect January 1, 2022.
