I am native american and receive free health care why would i have to pay a health insurance penalty?

You are exempt from the penalty.  When you enter the Health Insurance section:

  1. Select the option "I'll tell you who had it and when" after stating that members of the family did not have insurance.
  2. Select the appropriate months of members of the family who did have insurance.  (If none of them had it because they are exempt for being Native American, then leave all months blank or uncheck all boxes).
  3. Select the following option in the exception screen (see following screenshot):
