2020 FEDERAL POVERTY LEVELS AND CUTOFF FOR ACCEPTING 2018 TAX RETURNS

​ADAP MANAGEMENT MEMO 2020-10: 2020 FEDERAL POVERTY LEVELS AND CUTOFF FOR ACCEPTING 2018 TAX RETURNS


Effective April 1, 2020, ADAP will use the 2020 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Federal Poverty Level (FPL).

For Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) Medi-Cal referral, $17,609 (138% of FPL) represents the maximum income level for MAGI Medi-Cal for a family size of one. Additional maximum income levels for clients with family sizes greater than one are provided on page two for your reference.

The cutoff date for accepting 2018 tax returns for income documentation is typically April 15th, however the Internal Revenue Service and the California Franchise Tax Board extended the filing deadline to July 15, 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Therefore, after July 15, 2020, only 2019 taxes will be accepted unless proof of an extension is provided.

Please contact your OA Advisor if you have any questions regarding the information provided in this memo.

Thank you,
