TurboTax will not need specifics for the 1095-C from Medicaid for your return, as it does for the 1095-A form. The directions below will guide you through that area although you should click on the months the 1095-C plan covered, for the person it covered, but you will not need to enter the details for that form. Medicaid shares the information directly with the IRS, so those coverage details do not need to be entered in your return.
Turbo Tax will walk you through the questions for health insurance. Select either that you had insurance all year, or pick which months you did.
· Click on the Federal section on the left menu and then the Health Insurance section at the top
· When asked if you had health insurance in 2017, select either all year or you will pick what months (total all policies), and Continue.
· When asked about being enrolled in any of these less common plans in 2017, select Yes if anyone was enrolled for any months.
· On the What type of plan were you enrolled in? screen, select the option that generated the 1095-A, and then Continue.
Follow the prompts to enter your 1095-A for the months on your form. Leave any other months blank and Turbo Tax will know it does not need any forms for that time. Your return will not need an entry for any time covered by an employer's plan or by Medicaid. It does not need entry of 1095-B or Cs. It only needs specific information from the 1094-A form.
Note: If most of the lines across are the same, you can use the blue copy previous month button to enter it again.
