    The Affordable Care Act (section 9010) created an annual fee on certain health insurance providers beginning in 2014. This is often referred to as the “HIT tax” or health insurer tax. The HIT tax was suspended for the 2017 calendar year but it will again be effective as of January 1, 2018.

But he could look it up — in the bill. Page 29, sentence one of the bill introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont) says: “The consequence for not maintaining insurance would be an excise...
