Does the individual mandate apply for 2018?

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 repealed the shared responsibility payment, which is a penalty for not having minimum essential health coverage (and not being exempt from this requirement). But the repeal doesn’t impact 2018; it only provides relief after 2018.
