APPENDIX

The Appendix contains Medicaid and SCHIP eligibility information for every state and the Distrtict of Columbia.

While 100% of FPL is the minimum Medicaid eligibility level set by the federal government for children 6-19 years old, the two healthcare reform bills currently being considered in early 2010 would raise minimum coverage to 150% of FPL (HR 3962) or 133% of FPL (HR 3590) in states that have adopted the minimum Medicaid eligibility level.

Please do not dismiss your eligibility for these programs easily. The eligibility levels change annually, many states are offering subsidized “buy-in” options, and this reference will quickly become outdated. I have included web addresses and phone numbers for each program so that you can contact your state directly for the most current information.
