Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.
If you can afford health insurance but choose not to buy it, you must pay a fee called the individual shared responsibility payment. (The fee is sometimes called the "penalty," "fine," or "individual mandate."). You pay the fee when you file your federal tax return for the year you don’t have coverage.
Having said this, The fee is calculated 2 different ways – as a percentage of your household income, and per person. You’ll pay whichever is higher.
Percentage of income
=>2.5% of household income
=>Maximum: Total yearly premium for the national average price of a Bronze plan sold through the Marketplace
=>$695 per adult
=>$347.50 per child under 18
Using the percentage method, only the part of your household income that’s above the yearly tax filing threshold ($10,150 for individuals, $20,300 for couples filing jointly in 2014, the most recent year available) is counted.
Using the per-person method, you pay only for people in your household who don’t have insurance coverage.
I am sure this would help.
