US tax payers and crew health insurance - the tax penalty

 Permanent link   All Posts

The tax penalty goes away in 2019.  It is still in place.  So until then US tax payers may still get the 2.5% tax penalty - pro-rated for the months you do not have ACA (Affiodable Care Act/ Obamacare) compliant insurance.

None of the international individual plans are ACA compliant unfortunately. I do have an inexpensive Catastrophic plan that is exempt from the tax penalty that one can buy to supplement your international policy. 

There is a group plan that IS ACA compliant. One needs a US corporation to have this plan and a minimum of 2 members, not married, unless they both work on the vessel.
