Beginning January 1, 2014, health insurance coverage was required to be maintained by most U.S. persons including dependents. The Marketplace (Covered CA) was available for those that did not have coverage to purchase health insurance, assessed if applicants were eligible for Medicaid, provided certificates for those exempt from obtaining coverage, and offered the premium assistance tax credit. Those without coverage during the year 2014 will be subject to a penalty upon filing of their 2014 tax returns. Go to the ACA Penalty Calculator in the Links tab to determine your ACA Penalty.
