Federal Poverty Guidelines

The new 2015 federal poverty guidelines have been released. The 2014 guidelines are also provided here for reference.

It’s important to note that eligibility for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is now determined by the 2015 guidelines. Eligibility for advance premium tax credits is determined by 2014 federal poverty guidelines.

State-run health insurance marketplaces should update their standards as soon as possible to align with those of the federally facilitated marketplaces. A short explanation of what these changes mean to consumers is here (via Center for Children and Families).

Federally facilitated marketplaces will use the 2015 guidelines to determine eligibility for Medicaid and CHIP.
