A measure of income issued every year by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) - calculated by household size. Federal poverty levels are used to determine your eligibility for certain programs and benefits, including savings on Nevada Health Link health insurance, and Medicaid and Nevada Check Up coverage.
Eligibility determination for reduced-cost health coverage
- Income between 100% and 400% FPL: If your income is in this range, you qualify for premium tax credits that lower your monthly premium for a Nevada Health Link health insurance plan.
- Income below 138% FPL: If your income is below 138% FPL, you may qualify for Medicaid based only on your income.
- Income below 100% FPL: If your income falls below 100% FPL, you probably won't qualify for savings on a Nevada Health Link health insurance plan or for income-based Medicaid.
