2020 Upper Income Levels for MassHealth & Other Health Programs


Attached are updated income tables for 2020 showing the upper income limits in MassHealth and Other Health programs.

One table is the MassHealth Desk Guide showing the annual and monthly amounts that correspond to different percentages of the federal poverty level used by MassHealth; the 5% of FPL MAGI deduction is shown as a separate column.

The other two tables are prepared by MLRI and they add in the amount of the standard $20 or 5% of FPL deduction in MassHealth and shows the resulting income upper limits as monthly or weekly amounts. They also show which population group &  what type of coverage corresponds to the different upper income levels, and includes the ConnectorCare annual upper income limits for each plan type. 

The first of the MLRI tables ("2020 MLRI Upper Income Levels Table") lists the 2019 federal poverty levels for ConnectorCare coverage. The 2019 federal poverty levels are used for people applying for 2020 ConnectorCare coverage. The second MLRI table (MassHealth & Other Health Programs Income Table Revised for Open Enrollment") lists the 2020 federal poverty levels for ConnectorCare coverage. The 2020 federal poverty levels are used for people applying for 2021 ConnectorCare coverage, which they can start doing on November 1, 2020.
