Answer by Zarnev
1) employees can opt for a government version but since it won’t actually be cheaper most will stay with the employer provided plans. The government versions will be subsidized but you won’t receive that subsidy until you file your taxes. Therefore, most people will not be able to afford to pay the premiums if they must wait until tax time to get help.

2) The penalty will be collected when you file your taxes, and will go into the general fund to be used however the politicians deem to be the best use of those funds.
