QUESTION

I’m uninsured. Am I required to get coverage?

Individuals with no coverage | Individual Responsibility Requirement (Individual Mandate)
ANSWER

Everyone is required to have health insurance coverage — or more precisely, minimum essential coverage — or else pay a tax penalty, unless they qualify for an exemption. This requirement is called the individual responsibility requirement, or sometimes called the individual mandate. (26 U.S.C. § 5000A (a)).
