(ii) For persons who are 65 years of age or older, certified blind or certified disabled, a homestead loses its exempt status if the owner moves out of the home without the intent to return, and no spouse, child under 21 years of age, certified blind or certified disabled child, or other dependent relative is living in the home.
(iii) As set forth in section 360-4.4(c)(2) of this Part, transfers of homesteads to certain persons may result in ineligibility for MA coverage of certain care, services, and supplies, including nursing facility services.
(2) essential personal property including but not limited to:
(i) clothing and personal effects;
(ii) household furniture, appliances, and equipment;
(iii) tools and equipment which are necessary for a trade or business; and
