What are the income limits for applying for DMMA programs?


 

Financial eligibility criteria vary from program to program. However, the two most common benchmarks by which DMMA sets income criteria are the:

  • Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Tables
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Please check the information for the specific program or service for the exact criteria. However, the following tables may help you determine where your family is, in relation to these benchmarks.

If you want to find out more about how much your family would pay for the Delaware Healthy Children Program (DHCP), see the Table of DHCP Monthly Premiums below.
