"Obamacare will require everyone to have health insurance in 2014," but, actually, not really.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) talk about the gaps in the "universal coverage" requirements in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) in three batches of proposed PPACA regulations.

Granting certificates of exemption will be a "minimum function" of a state's exchange, HHS officials said in the preamble to the proposed regulations.

The HHS shared responsibility exemption rules will apply both to categories of people who need not buy coverage because, under PPACA, they are not "applicable individuals," and to categories of people who need not buy coverage because of PPACA shared responsibility exemption provisions, officials said.
