Medicaid Calculator

Here’s a tool for estimating how much income the community spouse (the spouse at home) can keep for himself or herself, out of the couple’s combined income.

For more about how the income allowance works and why it’s so important to do your own calculation, read the explanation that follows the calculator below.
