It's important to make sure that when you are purchasing a health insurance policy it meets the minimum federal requirements so that you do not have to pay the federal tax penalty. 

By definition, a Qualified Health Plan is an insurance plan that’s certified by the Health Insurance Marketplace, provides essential health benefits, follows established limits on cost-sharing (like deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket maximum amounts), and meets other requirements under the Affordable Care Act. All qualified health plans meet the Affordable Care Act requirement for having health coverage, known as “minimum essential coverage.”

To be sure that your plan meets all the necessary requirements, you should make sure that the plan you selected is a Qualified Health Plan*.
