You may not have to pay a fine if:

1. You cannot find insurance that costs less than 8% of your household income after tax credits and any contributions by your employer are applied,
2. You are a Native American, religious objector, or incarcerated,
3. You uninsured for less than 3 months in a year,
4. Your household income is below the threshold for filing income taxes (about $10,000 for individuals and $20,000 for married couples), or
5. You would have qualified for Medicaid if your state expanded Medicaid coverage, but your state has decided not to do so.
