As a result, it would be very easy to make an erroneous poverty classification. Another issue is how to account for out-of-pocket medical care costs. Even groups with medical insurance coverage, such as the elderly, pay some of their medical expenses directly, and the dollar amounts for such expenses as health insurance premiums, deductibles, copayments, and payments for uncovered services can be high. Yet little thought had been given prior to the 1995 NRC report as to how to adjust the poverty thresholds or the family resource definition to appropriately account for these costs.

This definition is broadly similar to the consumer unit definition that is used to develop the SPM poverty thresholds (Short, 2011:19).
