U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: 2015 Federal Poverty Guidelines

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has published the 2015 federal poverty guidelines used to determine income eligibility for many federal health and human services programs, including Medicaid.  The federal poverty guidelines also are used to determine eligibility for federal tax subsidies for individuals and families purchasing health insurance through the federal and state health insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act.  For 2015, the poverty guideline is $11,770 for an individual and $24,250 for a family of four (in the 48 states other than Alaska and Hawaii, which have higher guidelines).
