Medicare Part B premiums. Obamacare

If you receive Social Security benefits, Medicare Part A is included with your benefits and you pay for Medicare Part B.

Having Medicare Part A and B is considered as having health insurance coverage.

So, If you had social security benefits and are covered by Medicare all year, the correct answer to this question is: I had health insurance coverage all year.
