MassHealth updates its income standards with the current year's poverty level on March 1. This is a link to the MassHealth 2022 Desk Guide which shows the upper income levels for MassHealth and Medicare Savings Programs as monthly and yearly figures https://www.mass.gov/doc/2022-masshealth-income-standards-and-federal-poverty-guidelines-0/download
 
Rounding. The MassHealth Desk Guide shows the MAGI-based upper income levels rounded up to the next dollar but we recently learned the actual figures are not rounded in this way. The 2022 Desk Guide notes "The figures are rounded and may not reflect figures used in program determinations."  We obtained the actual figures used via a record request and MLRI's 2022 Income Table now shows monthly figures for the MAGI income standard based on the actual figures used for program determinations plus the actual figure used for the 5% of poverty standard income deduction used in MAGI.
