Income guidelines according to the January 13, 2021, Federal Register. FPIG's are effective for CHIP for March 1, 2021.
The bottom income limit for CHIP forms the upper income limit for Medicaid. The Affordable Care Act permits an income disregard of 5% of the upper Medicaid limit for applicants with incomes near the limit. This provision could result in some CHIP applicants being referred to the Department of Public Welfare if the household income is near the upper Medicaid limit.
