    7. 7. The individual mandate helps to keep the cost of coverage affordable for everyone. Remember that the law says you can’t be turned down for health insurance just because you have health problems. Without the individual mandate, healthy people wouldn’t have to get insured. So health plans would be left to cover mostly people who need more health care. That means a higher cost of care for a smaller group of people. The result: Premiums would be much too high. The individual mandate aims to have more people covered and more people contributing, whether sick or healthy, and keep premiums under control. Health Insurance Plans – Individual Mandate Kicks In Anthem.com – Healthcarereformforyou.com When an uninsured person requires urgent—often expensive—medical care but doesn’t pay the bill, everyone else ends up paying the price. That’s why the Health Care Law requires all people who can afford it to take responsibility for their own health insurance by getting coverage or paying a fee (penalty, or shared responsibility payment). People who choose not to obtain health coverage will also have to pay the entire cost of all their medical care. They won’t be protected from the kind of very high medical bills that can sometimes lead to bankruptcy.

    13. 13. In states that don’t implement Medicaid expansion, people between the state’s Medicaid ceiling (it varies by state) and 100% of the FPL will not be eligible for Medicaid or the new tax credit. However, these individuals will not be subject to a fee (penalty) if they do not obtain coverage through the Marketplace. People with income above 100% of the FPL will be eligible for the tax credit.
    14. 14. You may get an exemption from the fee for reasons of religious conscience; if you are a member of a recognized health care sharing ministry; a member of a Federally recognized Indian tribe; you have no tax filing requirement (household income below minimum threshold); if you have a short coverage gap (less than 3 consecutive months); you suffered a hardship; you have unaffordable coverage options (minimum amount you must pay for premiums is more than 8% of your household income); you are incarcerated; or if you are not lawfully present (neither a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, nor an alien lawfully present in the U.S.).
