Several months ago we shared the list of circumstances that a person could be exempted from shared responsibility according to healthcare.gov. Since then two new circumstances to qualify for hardship exemption were added making it possible for almost anyone to be exemption. To see the original set- see this blog:

Information to submit with your exemption application: Please submit documentation if possible.
