The Carrot and The Stick
2019 OPEN ENROLLMENT ENDS (most states)
Time: D H M S
My latest exclusive piece for healthinsurance.org is mainly a quick reminder that the tax penalty for not having ACA-compliant heatlhcare coverage in 2016 is up to 7x as high as it was for 2014, depending on your income and situation.
The Carrot refers to the federal tax credits available to more than 8 out of 10 of those who enroll; the Stick is the increasing Shared Responsibility Tax Penalty, aka the Individual Mandate tax.
