If you don’t have health coverage during 2017, you may have to pay a fee. The fee in 2017 is higher than it was in 2016 —In 2017 the fee is 2.5% of your income or a flat fee that is adjusted for inflaction, whichever is more.
Some consumers have been notified by the Marketplace via mail, email or by phone reminding them that they need to provide supporting documentation to resolve any remaining issues with their application as soon as possible.
