ACA: What Happens If You Don't Get Insurance, Pay The Penalty Tax, And Then Get Sick? [View all]

Are all of your health expenses now out of pocket, or do you get some kind of coverage/offset because you paid a "health tax?"

Suppose you come down with cancer. Do you go out and buy insurance at the point you're diagnosed, or do you just go in for treatments and expect that your expenses are covered by the money paid by the large pool of those with insurance?
