I understand what they are trying to do getting people to get health insurance, but i don't know about the penalty thing. i know when i tried to get private health insurance i was denied a couple of places due to my health issues, and some of them that would approve me denied me some of the things i need, or it was more than i could pay. so i don't understand the penalty thing that goes on your income tax return.

   The law requires you to either purchase health insurance or pay either a $95 fine or 1 percent of your adjustable gross income, whichever is more. This fine will increase each year util 2016.
   The penalty will be charged to what you owe the IRS in income taxes at the end of the year. If you usually get a return, then the government will take their $95 or 1 percent fine out of that. If you owe income taxes, then you will owe an additional $95 or the 1 percent penalty. And of course, if you don't pay your income taxes you can be charged with tax fraud and go to jail if convicted.
    Typically, what will happen is if you cannot pay the Obamacare fine it will be added to your income tax bill the next year.
    
    Regarding inmates: yes. Government bodies such as cities, counties, states, etc. by law must provide for the care of their inmates which includes health services. And those services are paid for using your tax dollars.

P.S. — As longtime observers of the criminal justice system, we can say with authority: Incarceration is not a recommended avenue for obtaining health coverage.

With the new law, if you cannot afford health insurance, they say you will just pay a penalty or get a low cost plan. What if you can't afford to pay for that nor can you pay the penalty, do you go to jail?
Do inmates get free insurance?
