Purchase health insurance from Covered California to avoid Tax penalties in 2023


Californians without coverage for the entire year will likely pay a minimum penalty. You must enroll in a qualified health insurance plan by January 15, 2023.

The penalty for not having coverage the entire year will be at least $850 per adult and $425 per dependent child under 18 in the household when you file your 2022 state income tax return in 2023. A family of four that goes uninsured for the whole year would face a penalty of at least $2,550.
