    IRS Releases Figures for Determining Individual Mandate Penalty Cap in 2014

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most individuals to obtain acceptable health insurance coverage for themselves and their family members or pay a penalty. This rule, which took effect in 2014, is often referred to as the individual mandate. The penalty amount that an individual will have to pay is capped at the annual national average bronze plan premium.

    On July 25, 2014, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released Revenue Procedure 2014-46 (Rev. Proc. 2014-46), which provides the 2014 monthly national average premium for bronze level plans.

    Also, effective for 2014, affordability of health coverage is used to determine whether an individual is:

    ·      Eligible for a premium tax credit for a health plan purchased through an Exchange; and

     

    ·      Exempt from the penalty for not having minimum essential coverage.
