(Posted on 18-Oct-14)

As of 2014, everyone in North Carolina (except for certain populations who qualify for an exemption) is required to obtain health care coverage from at least one of the following -- or face a tax penalty:

  • your employer or your spouse's employer.
  • a private policy (either purchased directly from a private insurance company or through the Federal Health Care Exchange).
  • Medicaid, NC Health Choice or Medicare.

Did you know that nearly 70% of North Carolina residents who purchase their health insurance directly will qualify for premium subsidies?

To find out if you qualify, visit the Kaiser Family Foundation Health Insurance Marketplace Calculator.
