Exemptions to the Individual Mandate
There are some cases where there is no penalty to not having coverage.
The Health Insurance Marketplace determines if you can get advance payments of premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions. They also assess Medicaid and CHIP eligibility. They make a referral, if appropriate, to KanCare for a final determination.
If you first apply to KanCare for Medicaid and are determined ineligible, you will be referred to the Health Insurance Marketplace. You may still be able to purchase subsidized insurance.
