The word Dhimmitude is an invented legal term which has sevearal meanings depending on the context. In some contexts it can refer to exeptions for muslims.

 

The following is an exact quote from page 107 of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (obamacare).  Which can be found at:

H. R. 3590—107

a premium tax credit or reduced cost-sharing under section

36B of such Code or section 1402 is being claimed, the following

information:

(A) INFORMATION REGARDING INCOME AND FAMILY

SIZE

.—The information described in section 6103(l)(21) for

the taxable year ending with or within the second calendar

year preceding the calendar year in which the plan year

in income.

(4) EMPLOYER-SPONSORED COVERAGE

.—In the case of an

enrollee with respect to whom eligibility for a premium tax

credit under section 36B of such Code or cost-sharing reduction

under section 1402 is being established on the basis that the

enrollee’s (or related individual’s) employer is not treated under

section 36B(c)(2)(C) of such Code as providing minimum essen-

tial coverage or affordable minimum essential coverage, the

following information:

(A) The name, address, and employer identification

number (if available) of the employer.

(B) Whether the enrollee or individual is a full-time

employee and whether the employer provides such min-

imum essential coverage.

(C) If the employer provides such minimum essential

coverage, the lowest cost option for the enrollee’s or individ-

ual’s enrollment status and the enrollee’s or individual’s

required contribution (within the meaning of section

5000A(e)(1)(B) of such Code) under the employer-sponsored

plan.

(D) If an enrollee claims an employer’s minimum essen-

tial coverage is unaffordable, the information described

in paragraph (3).

If an enrollee changes employment or obtains additional

employment while enrolled in a qualified health plan for which

such credit or reduction is allowed, the enrollee shall notify

the Exchange of such change or additional employment and

provide the information described in this paragraph with

respect to the new employer.

(5) EXEMPTIONS FROM INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

.—In the case of an individual who is seeking an exemp-

tion certificate under section 1311(d)(4)(H) from any require-

ment or penalty imposed by section 5000A, the following

information:

(A) In the case of an individual seeking exemption

based on the individual’s status as a member of an exempt

religious sect or division, as a member of a health care

sharing ministry, as an Indian, or as an individual eligible

for a hardship exemption, such information as the Sec-

retary shall prescribe.

 

The word Dhimmitude is not in that text, nor anywhere else in the bill from what I can tell.  There appears to be no special exemptions for Muslims as the word would suggest.
