I think I'm exactly the one this question is for!

I don't have insurance.
I don't want insurance.
I do have a medical savings account. Its like an IRA except instead of for retirement, its for medical expenses. I started it when I was 18. My boss at the time had a similar account for himself, he told me about it when I complained about the 25$ a week for insurance I never used.

I am now in my 30's. I have no intention of buying insurance.
I am quite confused about the whole thing anyway.
I hear, if insurance is over a certain percent of your income, you're exempt.
Is this true?
