Any employer-sponsored health plan counts as Health Insurance. 

  • Click on the Federal Taxes tab
  • Click on the Health Insurance tab
  • Under the "Did you have health insurance coverage in 2015?" screen question, click the box next to I had health insurance coverage all year.
  • Under the "Were you enrolled in a plan from HealthCare.gov or another Marketplace in 2015?" screen question, click the box next to No.

Your employer may have issued you a Form 1095-B.

How will my health insurance via employer have an impact on my federal return or does it? 

Thank you,

Teresa M.

Employer-sponsored health insurance primarily affects your income taxes in two ways - First, it helps meet the requirement that you have health insurance and second, it reduces your taxable income if your portion of the premiums (if any) is paid for with pre-tax earnings (payroll deductions).

 

If your Form W-2 reports an amount in Box 12, Code DD (Cost of employer-sponsored health coverage), that means you paid your part of the insurance premiums with pre-tax earnings.
