Washington Post

A “teachable moment” is one way to describe the consternation that people may feel when they file their taxes this spring and realize they may owe a penalty for not having health insurance.

According to a new survey, the number of people who may need to be schooled is substantial: Forty-four percent of uninsured people who may be subject to the penalty say they know nothing or only a little about the penalty they may face.
