Federal Poverty Level Guidelines for ADAP Clients

Current Program Income Eligibility Requirement

To be eligible for the ADAP program, individuals must have a Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) that is above 138 % of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and below 500% of the FPL (column B and C in the table below). If your income is below 138% of the FPL you may be eligible for MAGI Medi-Cal.

Instructions to Determine Recertification for Income Eligibility

How to read the table:

  • Identify the number of people in your household in column A.
      • Your household size includes your spouse, registered domestic partner, and any dependent(s) that you and/or your spouse or registered domestic partner claim on your tax return.
  • To continue to be eligible for the prescription/insurance assistance program, your income must be more than column B* and must be equal to or less than column C.
      • Example:  A married couple with no dependents is a household size of two. This household has an income of $73,350. The client enrolled in medication and/or insurance assistance is eligible.
      • Example:  A single person living with three roommates is a household size of one. This household has an income of $14,500. This client is not eligible for prescription/insurance assistance and should apply for MAGI Medi-Cal*.
