Michigan Health Insurance
Obamacare, otherwise known as The Affordable Care Act, requires all U.S. residents to have an active health insurance policy as of 2014. This means that if you live in the state of Michigan and you do not have qualifying health coverage or "minimum essential coverage", you will be fined either a flat fee of $695 or 2.5% of your income - whichever is higher - to be paid when you file your 2016 federal tax return.
Don’t Have Qualifying Health Coverage?
The enrollment deadline for 2016 insurance ended January 31, 2016. If you didn’t get health insurance coverage during the enrollment period, you may be able to decrease your fine and begin coverage if you’ve had a qualifying life event.
Qualifying Life Events for a Special Enrollment Period
Have you experienced any of the following qualifying life events? If so, you may be able to add or change your health insurance coverage during a special enrollment period.
- Loss of health coverage
- Change in household size
- Change in residence
- Exceptional Circumstances
