Most people must have qualifying health coverage or pay a fee for the months they don't have insurance. But if you qualify for a health coverage exemption you don't need to pay the fee.
3 Important facts about health coverage exemptions
- Exemptions are available based on a number of circumstances, including certain hardships, some life events, health coverage or financial status, and membership in some groups.
- You claim most health coverage exemptions on your federal tax return. Some require you to fill out and mail an application to the Marketplace.
- You don’t have to pay the fee for any month you have qualifying health coverage. If you’re uncovered only 1 or 2 months, you don’t have to pay the fee for any month.
