Who is eligible for such exemptions?
You can be exempted from the requirement to buy health insurance – and hence, from the penalty – if you meet one of the following requirements:
•You are uninsured for less than three months of the year.
•You live illegally in the United States.
•You’re incarcerated, and not awaiting disposition.
•You’re a member of a recognized Indian tribe.
•Your income is officially deemed too low.
•The lowest-priced converge would cost more than 8 percent of your household income.
•You’re a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare.
•You’re a member of a recognized health-sharing ministry. (Note: Christian Scientists do not currently qualify for the exemption.)
Healthcare.gov also provides a list of hardship exemptions that qualify an individual for exemption.
