Helping You Navigate Federal Health Care Changes

Beginning January 1, 2014, most Californians will be required to have health insurance under federal law as a result of the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as “health care reform,” “Obamacare,” or the “Affordable Care Act.” This “individual mandate” to obtain health insurance will impact you whether or not you choose to purchase health insurance. If you already have health insurance that meets federal requirements, you may be able to keep your current plan. If you or your family does not currently have health insurance that meets these minimum standards and you do not purchase an insurance plan by March 31, 2014, you will owe a tax penalty to the IRS.
