Who is exempted from paying the individual shared responsibility payment?

Under certain circumstances, you won’t have to make the individual responsibility payment. This is called an “exemption.” You may qualify for an exemption if:
  1. You’re uninsured for less than 3 months of the year
  2. The lowest-priced coverage available to you would cost more than 8% of your household income
  3. You don’t have to file a tax return because your income is too low (Learn about the filing limit.)
  4. You’re a member of a federally recognized tribe or eligible for services through an Indian Health Services provider
  5. You’re a member of a recognized health care sharing ministry
  6. You’re a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare
  7. You’re incarcerated, and not awaiting the disposition of charges against you
  8. You’re not lawfully present in the U.S.
