We have included some tools to help you work out if you or your children may be eligible for Medicaid, FAMIS, Plan First or other health benefits through the Federal Marketplace.
Click on the Eligibility Screening Tool on the right and answer a few questions to find out which health care coverage options are available to you.
The graph below is a quick reference guide to help you decide what health care benefits you or your family may qualify for. It shows what coverage options are available by program and by income. The numbers on the left side of the graph show the upper percentage limits of Federal Poverty Level (FPL)* for each program.
*The set minimum amount of gross income that a family needs for food, clothing, transportation, shelter and other necessities. In the United States, this level is determined by the Department of Health and Human Services. FPL varies according to family size. The number is adjusted for inflation and reported annually in the form of poverty guidelines. Public assistance programs, such as Medicaid in the U.S., define eligibility income limits as some percentage of FPL.
To help you:
100% FPL = $990 gross income per month for 1 person
100% FPL = $2,025 gross income per month for a family of 4
(Plus a 5% income disregard)
