Obamacare & US Expats

The Bugle has been wondering how the Affordable Health Care Act would affect Americans living overseas.

This is from the ACA website, in plainer English than the Department of Labor stuff:

 U.S. citizens living outside the U.S.
U.S. citizens living in a foreign country are not required to get health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. If you're uninsured and living abroad, you don't have to pay the fee that other uninsured U.S. citizens may have to pay.
Generally, health insurance coverage in the Marketplace covers health care provided by doctors, hospitals, and medical services within the United States. If you're living abroad, it's important to know this before you consider buying Marketplace insurance.
