  •  Isn't there a provision that allows anyone to (0+ / 0-)

    provide proof they can self-insure, and opt out of Obamacare?

    •  I don't know. That would be interesting, but I (0+ / 0-)

      wonder what the self-insurance criteria would be.

    •  Sure: pay the trivial "fine" - (0+ / 0-)

      And believe me ... compared to any illness or injury beyond the sniffles and boo-boos level of severity ... the ACA Fine/Tax IS "trivial."   At the moment, in my case, it amounts to less than one months' free- market, individual health insurance premium

       Better than that: there's no mechanism by which the IRS can collect it from a taxpayer who isn't owed a refund for overpayment of income tax.

      Then, if one has a change of fortune ... or does not actually have the wherewithal to pay -- there's always Bankruptcy Court.
