Health Insurance (ACA) Penalty for 2015 is $325 - Sign-UP!

The Sign-Up dates for 2015 ACA coverage are Nov. 15, 2014 through Feb. 15, 2015.

The Penalty for not having health insurance coverage in 2015 will be $325!

The Cost Penalty for not having health insurance coverage in 2014 was $95, or one percent of your taxable household income, whichever is greater.  In 2016 the penalty goes to $695.

See Open-enrollment information here: https://www.healthcare.gov/glossary/open-enrollment-period/

The Requirement to Buy Coverage Under the Affordable Care Act:  Along with changes to the health insurance system that guarantee access to coverage to everyone regardless of pre-existing health conditions, the Affordable Care Act includes a requirement that many people be insured or pay a penalty. This simple flowchart illustrates how that requirement (sometimes known as an “individual mandate”) works.  Excellent flowchart with simply explanation shown: http://kff.org/infographic/the-requirement-to-buy-coverage-under-th...

How You Pay the Penalty Fee

You’ll pay the fee on the federal income tax return you file for the year you don’t have coverage. Most people will file their 2014 returns in early 2015 and their 2015 returns in early 2016.

Young People and the Self-Employed NEED to Sign Up for Health Insurance Coverage

Young people who are not on their parents’ health plan, and do not have health insurance through an employer, should sign up for health insurance coverage. The reason why health care cost is so high for those who are insured is largely because those who are insured are paying for the health care services of the uninsured. The cost of health care delivery keeps escalating because the system is over-burdened by the uninsured.  This is why there needs to be an enforceable penalty for not signing up.  Get more information:

LISC CEO Talks Transportation Access on Global Citizen's “Vax Because”

As part of their worldwide vaccine access campaign, Vax Because, Global Citizen invited LISC CEO Lisa Glover and Uber's global head of social impact Julia Paige to discuss their $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, designed to upend barriers to transportation to vaccination sites—barriers that primarily affect undeserved communities of color. Said Glover in the video interview, together with Uber, “we can deliver the resources to our partners that are trusted on the ground, and they can work with their communities to get the transportation needs met.”
