Under the Affordable Care Act, everyone who can afford to is now required by law to have health coverage. If you can afford health coverage but chose not to buy it, you may have to pay a fee.
However, those who can’t afford coverage or meet other conditions may qualify for an exemption. It is important for individuals to know that exemptions are available and to understand the steps they need to take to request one.
If you qualify, receiving an exemption is simple and easy, and means you won’t have to pay a fee. There are a variety of exemptions available. You can claim most exemptions on your tax return, but some exemptions are only available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. See this chart for more information on the types of exemptions available and how to apply.
