  • in 2014, it will be 133% of the federal poverty level.

    I believe right now it's 100% of the federal poverty level

  • Medicaid income limits are different in every state because every state is going to have a different level of funding for medicaid so they have to base it on the funds they have to support it. Lower funds means the limit is going to go down and people will be dropped from medicaid. Ask the state of TN, they had a massive cut to Tenncare (TN Medicaid) and many people lost their medicaid.
