How is the Federal Poverty Level used to determine eligibility for certain programs and eligibility?

Every year a measure of income is issued by the Department of Health and Human Services. Those federal poverty levels are used to determine eligibility for certain programs and eligibility, including savings on Marketplace health insurance, Medicaid and CHIP coverage.

The 2021 federal poverty level (FPL) income numbers are below:

  • $12,880 for individuals
  • $17,420 for a family of 2
  • $21,960 for a family of 3
  • $26,500 for a family of 4
  • $31,040 for a family of 5
  • $35,580 for a family of 6
  • $40,120 for a family of 7
  • $44,660 for a family of 8

How are federal poverty levels used to determine eligibility for reduced-cost health coverage?

  • Income above 400% FPL: If your income is above 400% FPL, you may now qualify for premium tax credits that lower your monthly premium for a 2021 Marketplace health insurance plan.
  • Income between 100% and 400% FPL: If your income is in this range, in all states you qualify for premium tax credits that lower your monthly premium for a Marketplace health insurance plan.
  • Income below 138% FPL: If your income is below 138% FPL and your state has expanded Medicaid coverage, you qualify for Medicaid based only on your income.
  • Income below 100% FPL: If your income falls below 100% FPL, you probably won’t qualify for savings on a Marketplace health insurance plan or for income-based Medicaid.

At 100% poverty level you can start to receive subsides for lower premium cost and lower cost sharing. Income below poverty will most likely not receive subsidies.

400% is the maximum amount of income a family can have before they no longer qualify for subsidies. If a family makes more than 400% fpl, they can still enroll in the health Insurance Marketplace. But not eligible for tax subsides.

If you have other health coverage: Medicare Part A, B or C, Medicaid,CHIP, any job-based plan, and individual health plan, COBRA, retiree coverage, TRICARE, VA, or some other kind of health coverage you may not be eligible for subsidies.
