I didn't have health insurance because I got a new job and benefits didn't kick in until January

Does that still count as not being insured?

Under Affordable Care Ace (ObamaCare), you are allowed one short coverage gap exemption which covers less than three months in a row without coverage each year. In other words you are exempt for two full months, but need to have coverage for at least one day of the third month. If this exception applies to your current situation then you do not have to worry about the Shared Responsibility Penalty.
