It will be the same as going to an emergency room today without coverage...the taxpayer will cover it eventually.
OK. So what if you just don't pay. Suppose you aren't in a protected class, but you just don't pay. As I recall the law, the IRS can't collect these fines, although it can levy them. What happens then? Free medical care? AN escalating IRS debt? Do they partition the debt between back taxes of the usual kind and back medical mandates? I just don't get how this is supposed to work (although I know I'll get screwed and pay for it anyway).
