No single plan at this time , there are a number of plans circulating around. So I'm not sure if this feature is in all of them . But yes, insurance will be mandatory , if you can afford it , or else pay a tax of something like $ 750 a year . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The idea is that the cobra insurance money if you need it or not. You can not wait until your house is on fire to buy fire insurance. If people who are young and healthy do not buy insurance , then it is more expensive for the rest of us . If they wait until it's only old or sick and need the insurance , that's very unfair . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It's the same way with the police and fire protection . They are cheaper and more available , because we all pay for them in taxes , all the time . That's why most Americans want a single payer system , where health is seen as a right of citizenship , like police and fire protection .
