What if i had health care coverage all year but from two different companies?

Turbo Tax will walk you through the questions for health insurance.   Select either that you had insurance all year, or pick which months you did.

  • Click on the Federal Taxes tab and select Health Insurance
  • When asked if you had health insurance in 2016, select either all year or you will pick what months (total), and Continue.
  • When asked about being enrolled in any of these less common plans in 2016, select Yes if anyone was enrolled for any months.

OR select No, if you were not in a Marketplace plan and had coverage from work or Medicaid.

  •  If you answered Yes, On the What type of plan were you enrolled in? screen, select the option that generated the 1095-A, and then Continue.
  • Follow the prompts to enter your 1095-A for the months on the form Leave any other months blank and Turbo Tax will know it does not need any forms for that time.  Note:  If most of the lines across are the same, you can use the blue copy previous month button to enter it again.

 Your return will not need entry for any time covered by an employer's plan or by Medicaid. It does not need entry of 1095-B or Cs.  It only needs specific information from the 1094-A form.
