You don’t have to buy health insurance, but if you don’t you may owe a penalty.
Failure to purchase a health insurance plan will subject you to a yearly penalty that increases each year.
In 2014 the penalty is $95.00 per adult and $47.50 per child (up to a family maximum of $285) or 1% of income whichever is greater.
In 2015 the penalty is $325.00 per adult and $162.50 per child (up to a family maximum of $975) or 2% of income whichever is greater.
In 2016 the penalty is $695.00 per adult and $347.50 per child (up to a family maximum of $2,085) or 2.5% of income whichever is greater.
The penalty is applied on a monthly basis for months without coverage during the year.
There is an exception for a single period without coverage of less than three months.
Can't Afford it?
When you want some protection but simply can’t afford the ever rising cost of health insurance premiums, we offer some limited benefit options. These low cost options include a Critical Illness and Emergency Treatment plan and an individual Fixed Indemnity Health Insurance plan. These policies won’t help you avoid the penalty, but may give you some peace of mind.
