California’s new individual health insurance mandate (2019 Ch. 38, SB 78) requires state residents to maintain minimum essential coverage (MEC) for themselves and their dependents starting on Jan. 1, 2020, or pay a state tax penalty.
The mandate resembles the previous federal ACA individual mandate.
The penalty for failure to maintain Minimum Essential Coverage is as follows:
Because Sedera health care sharing is not insurance,
Sedera membership does not make an individual compliant with any state-level mandate recently passed or being considered in a given state.
Any and all applicable penalties would still apply for employers and individuals who do not meet the coverage mandates.
Alliance for Shared Health is an exempt ministry that shares in preventative care as well as cost sharing for office visits and non hospital events.
By joining this ministry you will qualify for the exemption while adding services to your healthcare solution.
Not only does this protect individuals from the penalty, but it offers access to all 80 of the mandated preventive care services, inclusive of 21 preventive care services for adults, 28 for women and 31 for children.
