Is plain Medicare insurance part of the choices on the tax form?

Medicare Part A, Part C or Medicare Advantage (Part B coverage by itself doesn’t qualify) meet the Affordable Care Act minimum requirement for health insurance.

 

In the TurboTax federal section, if you have Medicare Part A, Part C or Medicare Advantage for all of 2017, on the 'Did you have health insurance coverage in 2017?' screen, choose the first option, 'I had health insurance coverage all year'.
