Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.

YES, this requirement is necessary. to be eligible a person must meet the general eligibility requirements, such as being aged, blind or disabled. The person must also be in an institution such as a nursing home for at least 30 consecutive days.

This requirement is part and parcel of the requirement if you are eligible under "special income group". The special income level group is an optional group for states, meaning that states can choose to cover or not cover this group. Over 40 states have chosen to cover this group, though, so it is widely available as a pathway to receiving long-term care services under Medicaid. This is an important group for you to know about because it is aimed specifically at people who need long-term care services.

I am sure this would help.

You may please leave a positive rating if this helps as this is the only way we are compensated for assisting you. Alternatively, you may revert back with a reply if you need further assistance or if I have missed out on any aspect of your question.

Warm Regards,
