Will any health insurance suffice for individual mandate?

The plans on Healthcare.gov will be very expensive in 2018 the cheapest one will cost me $400 a month and I'm trying to find a way to save my hard earned money. I did find some plans on https://www.ehealthinsurance.com/ehi/st/all-plans that cost about $30. Do those plans meet the individual mandate requirement?


  • No, and those "plans" being offered are junk.  I'm sure that as part of the fine print disclosure that is thrown at you before you fork over your money there is a line about how this is not an ACA-compliant plan for the purpose of the tax required for not having such a compliant plan.

    Hello, and thank you for this discussion.  I left work in 2016 and had to meet the mandatory requirement of insurance.  The problem that I had was making a choice that would help meet to stop spending out of pocket.  Well, that insurance doesn't exist.  You either pay high premiums, or you pay when you go to the doctor because you have not met the deductible.  So, I used my brilliance and got the lowest premium and subsidize the plan with a monthly subscription plan to see the doctor at home.  I pay $12.95/mo for unlimited nonacute visits and the benefits are enormous.  For more information...  http://mobile.dreveangelsavage.com/telehealth-access/patient-portal.shtml    I hope this helps.
