2020 Income Guidelines for Program Eligibility

On January 17, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) adjusted the federal poverty levels, affecting income guidelines for Medicaid eligibility.

Individuals who recently applied for Medicaid coverage and narrowly exceeded income guidelines may now be eligible.

Under the new guidelines, a childless adult seeking Medicaid coverage may be eligible if he or she has an annual income at or below $17,609. Adults in a family of three may qualify if the total household income is at or below $29,974.
