How do I show I had health insurance on my 2016 tax return?

To show you had health insurance coverage for 2016, you’ll need to complete the Health Insurance section under the Federal Taxes tab.

If you purchased health coverage through Healthcare.gov or a state Marketplace, you’ll receive a 1095-A form. We’ll ask you to enter the info from your 1095-A in the Health Insurance section so we can calculate your Premium Tax Credit.

If your health insurance coverage wasn't purchased through the Marketplace, you'll get a 1095-B or 1095-C form. You won’t need to enter this form—the Premium Tax Credit is only available for Marketplace plans. Just answer the questions in the Health Insurance section and keep the 1095-B or 1095-C for your records.
