SPECIAL NOTE: Governor Newsom signed individual mandate SB 78 into law June 2019, which restored a tax-imposed penalty on individuals who do not have insurance effective January 1, 2020. While there are some exemptions to the mandate, individuals who do not maintain coverage are subject to a $695 state tax penalty.
