Confirming that I understand this link correctly about paying taxes on every month I was uninsured, and that nothing has been changed in the last week.
I went one month without healthcare when changing jobs (they didn't cover until I had been employed for a full 30 days). My income at $300K means I pay $3000 a year for no coverage multiplied by 1/12, meaning that I owe $250 based on the below:
If you’re uninsured for just part of the year, 1/12 of the yearly penalty applies to each month you’re uninsured.
Is am I correct, and to avoid this fee, do I have to temporarily sign up for coverage just for a month while waiting, or is there a way to negotiate this with an employer?
