What is max income Fam of 6 to qualify for the health care tax credit? If we go over by $7k and now have to pay back $18k, how do we set up deductions?

We took money out of our IRA to pay college tuition for our child.  It apparently sent our income $7k over the "limit" to receive the tax credit we received when purchasing our health insurance last year.  Now, we owe that back - $18k.  So, how do we set up deductions.  Do we include the 1095A form and then deduct the full amount of the enrollment premiums as a medical deduction?

To be eligible for the premium tax credit, your household income must be at least 100 – but no more than 400 – percent of the federal poverty line for your family size, although there are two exceptions for individuals with household income below 100 percent of the applicable federal poverty line. The poverty line for a family of 6 in 2018 was $33,740.  

Remember that simply meeting the income requirements does not mean you’re eligible for the premium tax credit. You must also meet the other eligibility criteria.
