Quick Facts: October is the month to change or renew your existing health insurance.


Open enrollment for Covered California health insurance plans happens once a year. For coverage that begins on Jan. 1st open enrollment begins on Nov. 1st, and lasts until January 31st (Medi-Cal enrollees are not limited to this period, and do not need to renew their enrollment in Medi-Cal during this time, because Medi-Cal enrollment is year-round.)


Purchasing health insurance through Covered California has many advantages. Covered California is the only place where an individual can learn about and use federal financial assistance that can help reduce health care costs. Consumers can also learn if they are eligible for low-cost or no-cost Medi-Cal. This also includes the ability to make true "apples to apples" comparisons of health insurance plans.


Avoid Obama Care Penalties"

 

Don't have health insurance? Enroll now to start coverage in January 1 on your 2017 taxes.

The fee for not having health coverage is calculated one of 2 ways. If you or your dependents don't have insurance that qualifies as minimum essential coverage you'll pay either a percentage of your household income or a flat fee -- whichever is higher.

 

Who's at risk for a tax penalty? 


Anyone who does not have a plan that meets Minimum Essential Coverage requirements may be subject to the tax penalty. A few examples of those who may be subject to the tax penalty are:

Those that choose to be uninsured.

Anyone who buys a health insurance plan that does not qualify as Minimum Essential Coverage.

Consumers that have a gap in coverage of more than three months between health insurance plans.

Who's exempt from the tax penalty for individuals and families?

Whether or not you're eligible for a premium subsidy and the estimated amount.

 

What is the tax penalty? 

The tax penalty will continue to increase from 2014 to 2016. After 2016, it will increase in relation to the cost of living. Also, the tax penalty is the greater of the specified percent of income or the flat dollar amount.

 

Tax Penalties by Year


Year Tax as a % of income Minimum flat dollar amount per adult Minimum flat dollar amount per child Maximum flat dollar amount per family
2014 1.0% $95.00 $47.50 $285.00
2015 2.0% $325.00 $162.50 $975.00
2016 2.5% $695.00 $347.50 $2,085.00


Note: The flat dollar amount (tax penalty) is the lesser of the maximum flat dollar amount per family (noted in the table above) or the sum of the minimum flat dollar amounts applicable to each individual in the family (noted in the table above).


2016 tax penalty examples - See how it applies to your family  


Example 1: A family of three

If a family of three (two adults, one child) has a household modified adjusted gross income of $100,000, and does not have major medical insurance and does not otherwise qualify for a penalty exemption, the 2016 penalty for this family would be calculated as follows:

  1. Figure out the total flat dollar amount:
    1. Flat dollar amount per adult = $695 (multiply this by 2 because there are two adults)
    2. Flat dollar amount per child = $347.50
    3. Add the flat dollar amount together from above = $2,085.00
  2. Figure out the 2.5% of income: 2.5% multiplied by $100,000 = $2,500.00
  3. Use the greater of the two to find out what your 2016 penalty is: $2,500.00
