QUESTION-What is a medical deduction?

ANSWER-People 60 years of age and older and adults with disabilities who receive Social Security and/or Disability (SSI/SSDI) may also receive a medical deduction, if they have out of pocket medical expenses over $35/month, which may increase their monthly SNAP (food stamp) benefit.

The Department of Human Service (DHS) will ask for verification of bills for medical costs over $35/month including: premiums, co-pays, prescriptions, dentures, hospital costs, nursing care, medical equipment and transportation for medical needs.
