New Program applicants must have an annual household income of 0% to 300% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines (FPIG) as published by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in the Federal Register and any revisions thereto (to the extent services are not covered by Medical Assistance). Current enrollees must meet the same eligibility criteria at the time of renewal as new applicants. A Patient Share of Cost will be applied on a sliding scale to applicants with an annual household income of 185% to 300% of the FPIG as published by the HHS in the Federal Register and any revisions thereto. Applicants must submit their Federal 1040 tax return from the prior calendar year to verify annual household income. If no Federal 1040 tax return was filed, other supporting documentation of annual household income is required.
