In 2015, from Apr-July (4 months) my spouse and kid were outside the US(for a vacation) and I removed them from my dependent coverage. I included them back in my insurance when they returned in Aug 2015.
This is an usual situation with people working under non-immigrant visa category.
Question is: When I choose the months we had coverage, I am not including APR-JUL 2015 for my dependents. This is adding a penalty on my returns.
Unless 2015 was the first year that your spouse was in the United States, you spouse is a legal, US Resident. That means you can not check the box for your spouse.
Sorry, nothing in your post indicates you qualify for a waiver to the penalty. However, you can check this link to see if anything applies to you:
