2019 Federal Poverty Level Income

The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) issues poverty guidelines that are often referred to as the "federal poverty level" (FPL). The Federally-facilitated Marketplaces and State-based marketplaces on the Federal platform will use the 2019 guidelines when making calculations for advance payments of the premium tax credit and cost-sharing reductions starting November 1, 2018.
