Federal Poverty Guidelines

The new 2016 federal poverty guidelines have been released. The 2015 guidelines are also provided below for reference.

It’s important to note that eligibility for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will be determined by the 2016 guidelines within the next couple of months (exact date of the switch over to 2016 FPL guidelines depends on the state). Eligibility for advance premium tax credits is determined by 2015 federal poverty guidelines for the remainder of the 2016 coverage year.

State-run health insurance marketplaces will update their standards within the next couple months as well. A short explanation of what these changes mean to consumers is here (via Center for Children and Families).
