Govt Shutdown & Obamacare Standoff

Obama: “I Will Not Negotiate”...Blah Blah Blah, its the Republicans.(NPR)

“It is abundantly clear that Harry Reid wants a shutdown. And now he’s gotten the shutdown that the wants.” - Senator Ted Cruz..More Blah Blah Blah.

Everyone throws blame at each other. In the meantime, health care exchanges are not working. People are not informed about plans even if they wanted to participate in the scheme.

From Healthcare.gov web site

"We have a lot of visitors on the site right now.
Please stay on this page.

We're working to make the experience better, and we don’t want you to lose your place in line. We’ll send you to the login page as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!"

Perhaps they could have used Harry Reid's face or Obama's likeness

Many Americans will opt opt of Obamacare. Many have lost their jobs or had hours cut and many have been told they will now be covered by Obamacare instead of employer provided healthcare.

By the way, like it or not, Americans opposed to Obamacare can opt out, there are exemptions. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2013/1001/Obamacare-101-What-to-know-if-you-opt-out-of-buying-health-insurance

Per the healthcare.gov web site, you can be exempt from Obamacare under the following circumstances.

Exemptions from the payment

Under certain circumstances, you won’t have to make the individual responsibility payment. This is called an “exemption.”

You may qualify for an exemption if:

  • You’re uninsured for less than 3 months of the year
  • The lowest-priced coverage available to you would cost more than 8% of your household income
  • You don’t have to file a tax return because your income is too low (Learn about the filing limit.)
  • You’re a member of a federally recognized tribe or eligible for services through an Indian Health Services provider
  • You’re a member of a recognized health care sharing ministry
  • You’re a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare
  • You’re incarcerated, and not awaiting the disposition of charges against you
  • You’re not lawfully present in the U.S.

Hardship exemptions

If you have any of the circumstances below that affect your ability to purchase health insurance coverage, you may qualify for a “hardship” exemption:

  1. You were homeless.
  2. You were evicted in the past 6 months or were facing eviction or foreclosure.
  3. You received a shut-off notice from a utility company.
  4. You recently experienced domestic violence.
  5. You recently experienced the death of a close family member.
  6. You experienced a fire, flood, or other natural or human-caused disaster that caused substantial damage to your property.
  7. You filed for bankruptcy in the last 6 months.
  8. You had medical expenses you couldn’t pay in the last 24 months.
  9. You experienced unexpected increases in necessary expenses due to caring for an ill, disabled, or aging family member.
  10. You expect to claim a child as a tax dependent who’s been denied coverage in Medicaid and CHIP, and another person is required by court order to give medical support to the child. In this case, you do not have the pay the penalty for the child.
  11. As a result of an eligibility appeals decision, you’re eligible for enrollment in a qualified health plan (QHP) through the Marketplace, lower costs on your monthly premiums, or cost-sharing reductions for a time period when you weren’t enrolled in a QHP through the Marketplace.
  12. You were determined ineligible for Medicaid because your state didn’t expand eligibility for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

If you cannot afford Obamacare or still want to opt out but do not qualify to opt out, you can pay the fine, its cheaper than paying the premiums and you if you do get sick and need it, well sign up for it in the ER if you have to. They cannot deny you after all for preexisting conditions.

Here are the fines per the same web site:

Starting 2014, most people must have health coverage or pay a fee (the “individual shared responsibility payment”). You can get an exemption in certain cases.
The individual shared responsibility payment

If you can afford health insurance but choose not to buy it, you must pay a fee known as the individual shared responsibility payment.

The fee in 2014 is 1% of your yearly income or $95 per person for the year, whichever is higher. The fee increases every year. In 2016 it is 2.5% of income or $695 per person, whichever is higher.

In 2014 the payment for uninsured children is $47.50 per child. The most a family would have to pay in 2014 is $285.

You make the payment when you file your 2014 taxes, which are due in April 2015.
