Question: What are the 2011 Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Guidelines

Answer:

The 2011 Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Guidelines determine the income level requirements for people applying for the Low Income Subsidy (LIS) program. If your income is below 135% of the FPL ($14,701.50 if you are single or $19,858.50 for married couples), you could qualify for the full Low Income Subsidy (resource limits also apply - see chart above). Even if you don’t qualify for full LIS benefits, you could be eligible for partial LIS benefits if your income level is at or below 150% FPL (resource limits also apply - see chart above). Remember, the LIS subsidy helps to pay both your monthly plan premiums and drug costs.

Below is a chart of the 2011 Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Guidelines:
