Do I Have to Buy Health Insurance?
Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
"A reader asks, "Will I be fined for failing to buy health insurance? I am 53 and make $12,000 a year.

"This question was sparked, no doubt, by the much-talked-about individual mandate, which is a central component of the health reform law. With some exceptions, this provision would require all U.S. citizens to purchase health insurance or face a penalty beginning in 2014."

Find out what else Lisa Zamosky of our Health Insurance Navigator blog, has to say about the question and the changes now underway.

Do you think you'll be better off under the new insurance laws in 2014? Why or why not?
