Medical and Remedial Expenses in the Family Care, Family Care Partnership, PACE, and IRIS Programs

This memo revises policy for countable medical and remedial expenses for the Family Care, Family Care Partnership, PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly), and IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self-Direct) programs. It repeals the policy in memo 2010-05 that prohibited an individual’s out-of-pocket purchase of a service or item from counting as a medical or remedial expense when it was coverable by the program’s benefit package, but was denied for that individual.
