Penalties Have Increased for 2016
If you can afford health insurance coverage in 2016 but don’t sign
up, you may have to pay a penalty ($695 per adult, $347.50 per
child – up to $2,085 a family, or 2.5% of family income – whichever
is higher). And, without insurance, you’ll be financially
responsible for all of your medical costs.
Examples: Family of 4 with household income of $42,000: 2.5%
of income = $1,050, penalty = $2,085. Family of 4 with household
income of $125,000: 2.5% of income = $3,125; penalty = $3,125.

You will not be denied coverage because of a pre-existing health condition. Some of the essential health benefits on every plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace include:
Medicaid Expansion and other Financial Assistance
In some states, Medicaid has expanded existing coverage. Even if your state does not expand Medicaid, government subsidies may be available depending on your income and other qualifications.
