The Affordable Care Act requires you and each member of your family to have qualifying health care coverage, qualify for an exemption from the responsibility to have minimum essential coverage, or make an individual shared responsibility payment when you file your federal income tax return. For purposes of ACA, qualifying health care coverage is also known as minimum essential coverage.
Minimum essential coverage includes:
Health plans offered in the individual market – plans offered by a health insurance issuer licensed by a state, including a qualified health plan offered through the federally-facilitated or a state-based Health Insurance Marketplace
Grandfathered health plans – plans that were in existence on March 23, 2010 and haven’t been changed in ways that substantially cut benefits or increase costs for consumers – for more information, visit HealthCare.gov
