Answer yes to any of these questions in 2014 and don’t have insurance for nine months or more? Do not pass go, do not get Obamacare.

There are a bunch of exemptions if you want to get out of the individual mandate.

Get your pencils ready, Garance Franke-Ruta in The Atlantic has a list:

  • Have you been unable to pay a medical bill in the last two calendar years?
  • Did you get a shut-off notice from a utility company?
  • Did you experience substantial property damage from fire, flooding, or other natural or man-made disaster?
  • Did you have to shell out unexpectedly on travel to go take care of your elderly mom, who got sick?
  • Has your mortgage company moved to foreclose against you?

You can find out more about getting out of the fee, AKA tax, for not having coverage here.
