I have Medicare. Do I have to get Affordable Care Act?

Question:  I have Medicare.  Do I have to get Affordable Care Act?

Answer:  If you have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance), you are considered covered under the Affordable Care Act.  If you only have Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance), you aren’t considered to have minimum essential coverage.  That means you have to pay the affordable care act penalty for people who don’t have necessary insurance coverage.
