The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, or ACA for short) – also known as "Obamacare" – is a law that changed the rules governing health care, and expanded access to care for millions of Americans.
The ACA requires every American to have health insurance coverage. If you do not have health insurance, or a health coverage exemption, you must pay a penalty (the "individual shared responsibility payment"). You can use IRS Form 1095 to submit proof that you had employer-provided health insurance coverage during the tax year, eliminating the potential of these fines and penalties.
