You pick the one that works best for you and your family.
Don’t Get Caught Without Coverage - People Who Don’t Sign Up Will Pay a Fine
Consumers have to consider their health insurance at tax time. If you don’t have health care coverage in 2017, you’ll have to pay a penalty when you file your federal income tax return. The penalties are $695 per adult or 2.5% of your household income, whichever is greater, for the 2017 calendar year.
