TRANSITIONAL MA PROGRAMS

ISSUE DATE: 09/2016

Some people closed from Medical Assistance (MA) due to increased income may be eligible for Transitional Medical Assistance (TMA) or Transition Year Medical Assistance (TYMA).

Transitional Medical Assistance (TMA): Up to 4 months of additional medical coverage provided to some people terminated from regular MA because of increased child or spousal support.

Transition Year Medical Assistance (TYMA): Up to 12 months of additional medical coverage provided to some people terminated from regular MA due to increased earnings, loss of earned income disregards, or a combination of loss of child/spousal support and increased earnings/loss of earned income disregards.


Households must contain a parent or caretaker and a dependent child. Both programs are person-based; thus, some households may have people receiving regular MA and/or TMA or TYMA.

For specific provisions and eligibility criteria, see the Minnesota Health Care Programs Eligibility Policy Manual.
