Health insurance while changing jobs?

Would I be penalized for not having health insurance in the US for three months while changing jobs?

I start a new job next week. The health insurance doesn't kick in for three months, but as I understand it one suffers a tax penalty under ACA if one doesn't have health insurance.
Presumably, this only applies at the point of doing your taxes? Is it okay if I am health-insurance-less for three months? (I'm 26 years old with no serious health problems, so I think it's okay on a health level.)
Either way, what are my options?
