Starting in 2014, households with income between 100% and 400% of Federal Poverty Level (FPL) who purchase coverage through a state health insurance exchange will be eligible for a premium tax subsidy to reduce the cost of coverage.

Here's an overview of the 2013 Federal Poverty Line (FPL) Guidelines.

What is the Federal Poverty Line (FPL)?

The Federal Poverty Line (FPL) is the set minimum amount of gross income that a family needs for food, clothing, transportation, shelter and other necessities. In the United States, this level is determined by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Federal Poverty Line varies according to household size, and the number is adjusted for inflation and reported annually in the form of poverty level guidelines.
