It’s true: The Affordable Care Act requires all Americans to have health insurance. But not everyone has to get that insurance through the Obamacare online exchanges. Indeed, only a small percentage of the US populace is expected to do so. To find out if you may be one of them, read on.

Obamacare will cause big changes in the way many Americans get health care. That’s been the subject of a lot of news in recent weeks. But it can be hard for average people to figure how this complicated new law affects their particular circumstances. Its website, HealthCare.gov, isn’t working well, and Washington seems preoccupied with political wrangling over the program.

We’re trying to help clear up this confusion by explaining in simple language important aspects of Obamacare, which is also known as the Affordable Care Act.

The bottom line: Only a small percentage of the US population needs to sign up for Obamacare health plans.
