Household Composition

A CIHCP household is a single person living alone or two or more persons living together where legal responsibility for support exists. Household members who are eligible for Medicaid are excluded from the household when determining CIHCP eligibility, but should be listed on the application.



An applicant must live in and intend to remain in Fort Bend County.



Fort Bend County is required to cover individuals with countable income of 21% or lower of the federal poverty income level (FPIL). Certain amounts of income may be exempt if there are work related expenses and/or child/dependent care costs.



Household resources may not exceed $2,000.00. If the household includes a disabled member, the limit is $3,000 (must show proof of disability-Physician's Statement).
