For purposes of determining eligibility for modified adjusted gross income (MAGI)–based Washington apple health (WAH) (see WAC 182-509-0300):
- The agency does not count needs-based assistance given to a person by other agencies or organizations if the assistance given is not treated as taxable income by the IRS. Examples of needs-based assistance are:
- Household supplies;
- Medical supplies (nonprescription);
- Personal care items;
- Transportation; and
