Federal Poverty Guidelines

The 2018 federal poverty guidelines have been released. The 2017 guidelines are also provided below for reference. Federal poverty levels are used to determine eligibility for certain federal health programs, including Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

For more about the FPL guidelines, see this article by the George Washington University Milken Institute of Public Health: Poverty vs. Federal Poverty Level.

Eligibility for advance premium tax credits in the individual marketplace (exchange) is determined by 2017 federal poverty guidelines for the remainder of the 2018 coverage year. Eligibility for Medicaid and CHIP in 2018 is determined by the 2018 poverty guidelines.
