About This Page

You cannot file a Revenue Recapture claim for medical services if the debtor’s income was below the amount set in state law  when the medical service was provided. (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.

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.
