Do I need to enter a 1095-A on my tax return if I never paid and cancelled due to ineligibility?

I signed up for Obamacare in January of 2018. I was promoted to full-time on January 6, 2018 and my employer allowed me to receive benefits retroactively, January 1, 2018. I signed up for health benefits through my employer and immediately cancelled the Obamacare.  I never paid for the January Obamacare because I figured that the moment my employer offered benefits beginning on January 1, 2018 that I was ineligible for Obamacare. I received a form 1095-A for the month of January 2018. Do I need to enter this form in my tax return?

Do I need to enter a 1095-A on my tax return if I never paid and cancelled due to ineligibility?

You have a couple of options. 

1. You can contact the Marketplace Call Center to get the errors corrected. I suspect they might know since you never paid for anything.

1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325)

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except holidays)

2. You could complete your insurance on TurboTax stating that you had insurance all year. With this option if you haven't made the corrections with the Marketplace you may get a letter wondering why you didn't include your 1095A.
