One of the key components of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is that everyone is required to obtain health coverage. If you don’t have coverage, you are not only responsible for paying all of your health care expenses out of pocket, but you will also be subject to a fee. However, in a few special situations, you may qualify for an exemption from the penalty.
