The maximum modified adjusted gross income for a family of three to receive Medicaid in Florida ranges from $3,397 to $2,193 per month, as of April 2015. Florida did not expand Medicaid to cover low-income adults who are not caregivers to children, according to Medicaid.gov.
For children under the age of 1, the MAGI limit is $3,397 per month. Children between the ages of 1 and 5 qualify if their household's MAGI is $2,309 or less per month, notes Medicaid.gov. For children ranging from 6 to 18 years of age, the monthly MAGI limit is $2,193. Pregnant women receive Medicaid coverage if their monthly household MAGI does not exceed $3,150. Parents to minors qualify for Medicaid if their MAGI does not exceed $495 per month.
Florida households can calculate their own MAGI by adding any tax-exempt foreign income, Social Security benefits and interest to their adjusted gross income, explains HealthCare.gov. They can locate their AGI on their federal tax return by looking on line 37 for form 1040, line 4 for form 1040 EZ or line 21 for form 1040A. When estimating their MAGI for the next year, households should take into account any expected raises, changes in household members or any other change that could impact their income.
