if yes (more to the second part then the first), then you are fine.

if not, and you don't get on Obamacare, then you will be fined. and I believe the fine is less then what your premiums would be (added up over the year).
I will be fined if I choose not to have my own health insurance?

That is assuming that the insurance company is still writing individual policies. They may tell you to just use the exchange.
So if I go out and try and get insurance, and let's say I do; If it doesn't meet the government standards, I will get a fine?
