How much money does a person in a NH get to keep out of SSI for monthly needs?

They have 2 insurance premiums to pay a month. Does that get deducted before the amount owed nursing home is figured? When we figured premiums and what the nursing home was charging it only left 37.95 per month for personal items. It is my understanding that they were suppose to have 60.00 a month for personal needs. Now I understand that has gone up to 75.00.

Had to have the insurances to qualify for Medicaid at one time. I am going to cancel them as they are no longer needed since I am in a nursing home.

For Nebraska, the PNA (personal needs allowance) is $50 per month, but there is a bill in the legislature to raise it to $60, which has not yet passed.
Your patient should not have to pay any health insurance premiums if they are on Medicaid, so I will ask what insurance? And why only 37.95? What is being deducted from the current $50 allowance? $12.05 for what? newspaper? phone?
