Meeting the MCAP Income Guidelines

To see if you meet the MCAP Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) guidelines, we look at your federal income tax for household:

What is Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI)?

MAGI counts income and people in your household who are claimed on your federal tax form. MCAP then compares your MAGI to the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for the household size claimed on your tax form.

Whose income should be counted?

To see if you meet the MCAP guidelines, only count the income of the family members included or who will be included in your federal income tax form.

What income should be counted?

Only list the income that you will report on your federal tax form for individuals that will be included on your federal tax form.

Family Size

The family size is the Tax filer plus all persons expected to be claimed as tax dependents on your federal tax form. A pregnant woman counts as one PLUS the number of expected child (ren).
