NOTE: In general, make the presumption that any payment made by the individual to the institution
is a payment towards the CMV of the food and shelter. However, there may be instances
(e.g., impairment related work expenses, plans for achieving self-support) when it
might not be to the individual's advantage to apply this presumption. In such a situation,
the individual's payment should be attributed in the manner that is most advantageous
to the individual. See Example 2 in SI 00835.790B.
