I don't have health insurance. Haven't for over a year and a half due to my current employer not offering it (and basically paying me a higher salary instead). Chose not to for the dual reason of a calculated risk (I haven't been to the doctor in years) and laziness.
I recognize now the Affordable Health Care Act requires it or there will be a tax penalty. However, I cannot find clear info anywhere. I've heard dates like 3/1/14, 3/31/14, and 4/1/14. But I cannot even figure out what the tax penalty would be for no insurance.
I've found some plans for like 200/month. That kinda blows, but it's doable. Any accountants or insurance agents here know anything about this? My questions are basically when should I enroll by and what's the tax hit for not. My combined household income is about 120k.
