Where do I enter my health insurance premiums if I'm self-employed?

Follow the instructions below to enter your premiums, and we’ll check to see if you qualify for any deductions:

I got a 1095-A from Healthcare.gov or a state marketplace.

  • Report the premiums you paid on your 1095-A in the Health Insurance section.
  • Type “1095-A” in the Search box and then select the “Jump to” link

I paid COBRA premiums and the policy is in a former employer's name.

  • Enter the premiums as a medical expense in Deductions & Credits under the Personal tab.
  • Type “Schedule A” in the Search box and then select the “Jump to” link

I paid health insurance premiums and the policy is in my name and not from a Marketplace.

  • You’ll enter the premiums as a business expense, under Business Income and Expenses.
  • Type “Schedule C” in the Search box and then select the “Jump to” link.
  • Go to Self-Employed Health Insurance under Less Common Expenses.
