It's a form required by the IRS to verify health coverage. A joint return may have information showing that you covered by the VA and some sort of family insurance.

I got one of those in the mail, one day last week.  I figured it was one of those Nobama care things, and will show it to my tax pro.  Same with my proof of insurance from work.

The crazy one here, I sure hope someone will chime in and tell me that I am wrong but I think this is about covering veterans.  Veterans that use the VA hospital are covered and are not required to enroll in the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Those who are not in the system may be liable for penalty charges.  Wow isn't that great that cost-of living allowance/adjustment (COLA) was already included in the penalty charges even though we (veterans) did not get a (COLA) increase this year.


Penalties Increase Annually

Many Americans may choose to pay the penalty in 2014 in lieu of paying for health insurance. But note that the penalty is slated to increase each year:

  • In 2015, it goes up to $325 or 2 percent of your household income, whichever is greater;
  • In 2016, it goes up to $695 or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater; and
  • In 2017 and beyond, it goes up to $695 plus a cost-of-living adjustment, or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater.

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
