Webinar: The World According To MAGI

Executive Summary

As of January 1, 2014, states must use the new Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) methodology to determine eligibility for Insurance Affordability Programs (IAPs), including tax credits and cost sharing assistance for health insurance purchased through Marketplaces/Exchanges, the Children?s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and for many Medicaid categories.  This Webinar, which NHeLP presented on January 7, 2014, covers the details of this new methodology, with particular emphasis on various hypothetical family examples to help teach advocates the complex new rules on household composition.  In addition to the recording and the power point slides, we have posted two handouts to which we referred during the Webinar.
