|Deductible Excess Medical Expenses November 23, 2015 Memo Revision
|All Regional SNAP Directors
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
On Nov. 23, 2015 the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Program Development Division (PDD) issued a memo in response to multiple inquiries received regarding the SNAP excess medical expense deduction for elderly and disabled households. FNS is reissuing this memo to clarify the following sentence.
In the third paragraph of the memo, the sentence now reads:
"For an expense to be deductible under this provision, it must be prescribed or approved by a state-licensed or qualified practitioner."
A revised version of the memo is enclosed. Please replace the memo issued on Nov. 23, 2015 with this revised memo.
