(1) For SSI-related medical programs, a vehicle is defined as anything used for transportation. In addition to cars and trucks, a vehicle can include boats, snowmobiles, and animal-drawn vehicles.

(2) One vehicle is excluded regardless of its value, if it is used to provide transportation for the disabled person or a member of the person's household.

(3) For a person receiving SSI-related institutional coverage who has a community spouse, one vehicle is excluded regardless of its value or its use. See WAC 182-513-1350 (7)(b).

(4) A vehicle used as the person's primary residence is excluded as the home, and does not count as the one excluded vehicle under subsection (2) or (3) of this section.

(5) All other vehicles, except those excluded under WAC 182-512-0350 (11) through (14), are treated as nonliquid resources and the equity value is counted toward the resource limit.
