I didn’t have medical insurance last year. What type of situations might entitle me to an exemption from the Shared Responsibility Payment?

There are several possible exemptions including:

  1. Exemptions granted by the Marketplace
  2. Exemptions that can be claimed by the taxpayer on the return when it is filed;
  3. Hardship exemptions

Some of the Exemptions are based upon your level of household income, living status or your membership in certain groups (such as certain religious sects, or Indian tribes). You can read more about Exemptions, including when and how to apply, at
