If this is for your Massachusetts state return:
If you did not receive a 1099-HC, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue says:
You can call your insurer or your employer's human resources department or benefits administrator for help, if you get health coverage through your job. If your insurer or your employer is unable to assist you, please refer to the Benefits Required Under MCC section below to see if your policy meets these requirements. If your plan meets all of the requirements, you may certify that you were enrolled in a plan that met the MCC requirements during that time period. See the link to their site at the bottom.
If you did not receive Form 1099-HC for your Massachusetts return, check the box to indicate you didn't receive a 1099-HC, and enter the name of your insurance company (medicare) and your medicare number. If you do not have this information, you may call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) or go to www.mymedicare.gov You have minimum creditable coverage MCC if you have Medicare Part A or B

That answer is partially incorrect. If you have Medicare, the correct answer to What type of health insurance did you have in 2017? is <name> had something else. You'll then see the What type of insurance was it? question, and can check Medicare. You won't be asked for 1099-HC information, as it isn't required when you have Medicare.
