About This Page

Medical service debts are exempt from Revenue Recapture if the debtor's income was below the amount set in state law at the time of the medical service. (See Minnesota Statute 270A.03 and Minnesota Rules 8165.0300.)

Debtors must provide their federal tax return and all sources of income for the tax year they received the medical service to the claimant agency.  Contact the Revenue Recapture Program with any questions. 

What counts as income?

For this purpose, "income" is the debtors' federal adjusted gross income plus any of the following income for both spouses:

  • All non-taxable income

  • Cash public assistance and relief

  • Any pension or annuity, and all payments received under the Social Security Act

  • Workers’ Compensation

  • Disability income

  • Lump-sum distributions

  • Any other income defined in Minnesota Statute 290.067, subdivision 2a

Note: Child support does not count towards income.

 

Poverty (Medical) Income Guidelines

The poverty (medical) income guidelines for the previous 10 years are listed below. Current year data is taken from the federal poverty guidelines and then are adjusted by state guidelines. They are linked directly within the statute (M.S. 270A.03, subd 5). 

Note: If the debtor is married, include both spouses' income when applying these guidelines, unless they are legally separated.
