N. Korean leader's wifeBy DD

North Korea is looking like a good option these days, especially after watching the brutal behavior of the Texas sheriff Department yesterday and the ever-increasing procreation of Civilian screw down in the USA.  It’s like the twilight zone, Police behaviour has become totally unpredictable, weird and has left the caring American populace in a total spin.

We can feel the fear all the way across the Pond here in the UK and if you fall we’re next, get it together please.




Like the majority of American citizens, you might be asking the question “can I get fined for not having Obamacare health insurance?” Unfortunately the answers is yes and no. There are a couple of ways you can avoid having to pay a fine, also known as the individual shared responsibility payment, like receiving an exemption for financial hardships, religious reasons, are a legally recognized Native American, and there are numerous other loopholes you can jump through.

The Key Questions: “Can I Get Fined For Not Having Obama Care Health Insurance?” and ”If So, How Much?”

None of us need another bill, and now non-participation this controversial regulated healthcare program will decrease your annual salary if you’re not already insured or qualify for an exemption.

The fine goes into effect 2014, although with the recent technical glitches with the HealthCare.gov website there may be a delay on the enforcement of penalties, as proposed by Senator Marco Rubio today, and continued opposition may change the mandatory Obamacare health insurance coverage requirement, or repeal it all together. Yet for now, this fiasco will cost each and every American out of pocket cash money. Relatively low, the amount of the fine for 2014 is 1% of your annual income or $95 per person, whichever is higher. This may not seem like much, but if you earn a $20,000 salary, a $200 bill is in many cases not “affordable”. The fine for uninsured children is $47.50 per child with a family “cap” of $285 (the government half dozen deal?).

After 2014, things get increasingly worse.

In just two years, 2016, the fine is estimated to reach $695 per person or 2.5% of your annual income, yikes! Remember paying the fine is not health insurance. You must pay the fine(s) and still must pay full uninsured pricing for your medical care, prescriptions, emergencies, etc. as well.

As of now, paying the fine is cheaper than most health insurance available, provided that you are a perfectly healthy person, never get sick and don’t have any accidents. The motivation behind the fine for not having Obamacare health insurance is meant to make having health insurance coverage more advantageous than not, but is it the government’s responsibility to make decisions about our own personal health care?

Open enrollment through the Obamacare Marketplace ends March 31, 2014. If you miss this deadline you will have to pay the fine and wait for the next annual enrollment period. You can avoid paying the fine and enrollment if are determined exempt or have a “qualifying life event” which include(s) changes such as your family size (i.e. birth, death, etc.), marriage and divorce.

Technically, the law states that you can be uninsured for up to three months of the year without having to pay the fine for not having Obamacare health insurance coverage, so the real deadline on making a decision could be postponed until March 2014.

“How Can I Avoid Getting Fined For Not Having Obamacare Health Insurance?”

The only other way besides an exemption to avoid being fined by the federal government under the Affordable Care Act is to have valid “minimum essential coverage”. Acceptable essential coverage includes; having insurance through your employer, being on Medicaid or Medicare, TRICARE and VA, as well as CHIP (Children Health Insurance Program) for children of low income households.

Since the healthcare.gov site is malfunctioning, you may want to check out the Subsidy Calculator from The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation which will give you a real customizable figure of how much you can expect to pay for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. You can also find out about subsidies and alternative health insurance options regardless if you decide to take the fine for not having Obamacare health insurance.
