Those without health insurance were charged $325 or 2 percent of their household incomes–whichever was higher–in 2015. That penalty will jump to $695 per adult, or 2.5 percent of their income, in 2016, according to the government.

I've been getting emails from Healthcare.gov for months, and the most recent emails state that the final deadline for open enrollment is fast approaching, but that you still have this last chance to get health insurance through Obamacare.
Don't wait! There are some special circumstances that allow you to get health insurance outside of the open enrollment period, but if you know you'll need it, either get it now or verify that you'll qualify for the open enrollment period.
