SR 12-04 Dated 07/12
The EED is only given to certain medical assistance-only groups and in cases of deeming or lump sum calculations. The EED is a flat rate deduction and represents all employment expenses except child care (e.g., federal income tax, FICA, transportation). There is no separate EED used for FANF financial or categorically needy medical assistance eligibility.
For the following types of cases, the EED is a flat rate of $90 per employed individual:
• *CM: Children’s Medicaid for children aged 0-19 with net family income no higher than *300% of federal poverty income guidelines; and
• MCPW: Medical Coverage for Pregnant Women with net income equal to or less than 185% of the federal poverty income guidelines.
For CSD, HC-CSD, and FANF medically needy medical assistance, the rate is 20% of individual countable gross earned income. Subtract it only from the individual’s own countable gross earned income as the first deduction in calculating their adjusted or net earned income.
