January 31st is the deadline, and I decided that I'd rather see what's offered than be forced to pay $625 in penalties in the 2016 tax year. I completed my application, which probably took about 30 minutes of my time, and they processed it. I was surprised to find out that I'm apparently not eligible for anything except for *possibly* medicaid, which means that if I don't get a medicaid notice from my state as a result of this application, I'll be paying the penalties anyway. Now...how does that work exactly?

Does my income filter out possible providers? Why didn't they ask for an estimate of my assets or savings? I made $0 last month, and I will likely make $0 for a few more months of this year at the least - but why does that prevent me from seeing options I can pay for? What in the actual fuck?

The "eligibility" pdf they sent me was a TON of technical jargon, followed by ways to appeal the automated decision...and none of it seemed particularly relevant to my situation. Hurray for bureaucracy!
