The California Department of Health Care Services has announced the “average private pay rate” (the “APPR”) for 2016 is $8,189. This is the amount used to calculate the period of time a person is ineligible from long term care assistance if he or she gives more than that amount away to another individual in a non-exempt gift.

The present rules provide if just under that amount, such as $8,188, is given away, they round down to zero and so no period of ineligibility is created.
