About the Affordable Care Act Exemption
Built upon the foundation of the Christian tradition of medical cost-sharing, the Liberty Direct program is administered by Liberty HealthShare, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization of Gospel Light Mennonite Church Medical Aid Plan, Inc. that is recognized by the US government as a health care sharing ministry. Members of health care sharing ministries are exempt from the ACA (commonly referred to as “Obamacare”) requirement to have health insurance.
Among the many provisions in the ACA legislation is the “individual mandate”… the requirement that every American purchase health insurance. Under this law, you must purchase health insurance by Feb 15, 2016, be exempt from the law, or face a fine imposed and collected by the IRS.
