Proof is in the pictures right up there. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around this. Now either that page on the ACA site is jacked up and wrong (and I'm SURE a few folk on here will try and point that out to me) but I'm really truly doubting it.

I just moved here. I haven't the funds to move again.

That makes me feel better.
I just also loathe (and many feel this way too) of having to get something I'll probably never use. It's like paying to exist (though we do that anyway to be point blank honest).
Also, a current misnomer, unless I am misunderstanding something, the fine is always quoted to be 97 dollars. That is not truth. It is actually 10% of your total income, and will increase each year.
$95 dollars or
1% of your yearly household income. (Only the amount of income above the tax filing threshold, $10,150 for an individual, is used to calculate the penalty.)
The way the penalty is calculated, a single adult with household income below $19,650 would pay the $95 flat rate. A single adult with household income above $19,650 would pay an amount based on the 1 percent rate. (If income is below $10,150, no penalty is owed.)

But, you seem to have forgotten, the ACA is the only insurance you can now buy at the time you need it, retroactively.
So, the person who doesn't think they need it, that slips on the ice and cracks their skull, can now buy healthcare the day they get injured or sick.
