The income limit for Washington Apple Health -- the state's Medicaid program -- depends on the size of your household and your age or disability status. The Washington State Health Care Authority sets these income limits, and they generally increase each year to reflect inflation.
For most households, your annual income must generally be lower than the Federal Poverty Level as set for your household size by the US Department of Health and Human Services. For example, if your household consists of three members, you must have an annual income of less than $22,311 as of 2021 to qualify.
For people whose income is higher than the FPL, but who still have lower incomes, the Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) test might be used, with higher income limits. For instance, the MAGI limit for a household of three people is $44,880 as of 2021.
For those who are aged, blind, or disabled, different eligibility criteria apply. Some are eligible with higher incomes, so it’s important to check with your local Washington Apple Health office.
Overall, the income limit for Washington Apple Health depends on your household size, disability or age status, and also your income. It’s important to check with your local Washington Apple Health office to find out if you’re eligible.
