Starting in 2014 Obamacare kicks in and most people in the United States MUST have health insurance coverage. Or pay a fee!
Obamacare Open Enrollment Period is November 1 to January 31.
You will not have to pay a fine as long as you enroll by January 31. However, the sooner you enroll – the sooner the coverage starts. If you enroll in a health plan between December 24 and January 15, your coverage will commence February 1. If you enroll between January 16 and February 15 – coverage will begin March 1. If you wait till after February 15, coverage will not start until April 1 at the earliest. If you don’t have insurance now, that’s a long time to go without coverage.
The good news is that you can CHOOSE where you buy your health insurance.
You can get insurance quotes and buy through the troubled healthcare gov/Marketplace
– but you have to fill in all your personal information BEFORE you see the quotes.
OR you simply enter your ZIP code and age in the form to the right – and get immediate health insurance quotes from major insurers. Then you choose what’s best for you.

How to Get Affordable Health Insurance Coverage in 2014.
Under ObamaCare – every one of you must have health insurance, or you will have to pay a penalty. Pretty well any type of coverage will meet the requirement of the mandate. Private insurance, employer insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Veterans Affairs, the Indian Health Service or Tricare.
There is a Penalty if you don’t comply.
People who do not have a qualified health insurance policy will have to pay a tax penalty – starting at $95/individual, $285/family or 1 percent of income. Whichever is the greater for 2014. The incredible thing is, those penalties rise to $695 per individual, $2,085 per family or 2.5 percent of income in 2016. If you have low enough income you won’t have to pay a penalty.
