Minimum essential coverage must have been in place by January 1, 2014. This is the type of health care coverage needed to meet the individual responsibility requirement under the Affordable Care Act. Most people who do not meet this provision of the law are required to pay a fee for each month they do not have adequate coverage. This fee is collected with the 2014 tax returns.
