What is the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and why is it important?


The federal poverty level is how the federal government defines poverty, and it's used to decide who's eligible for premium tax credits and reduced cost-sharing on the Marketplace, as well as other programs like Medicaid and CHIP. FPL is based on a family's annual income and family size. Premium tax credits may be available to Kansans who are at 100% to 400% of the FPL. Cost-sharing reductions may be available until a family's income reaches 250% of the FPL.
