Am I Eligible for a Health Insurance Coverage Exemption or Required to Make an Individual Shared Responsibility Payment under the Affordable Care Act?

ITA Home

This interview will help you determine if you are eligible for a health insurance coverage exemption or if you're required to make an Individual Shared Responsibility Payment under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

While you can claim most exemptions from coverage when you file your tax return, certain exemptions must be granted by the Health Insurance Marketplace in advance. If the Marketplace grants your coverage exemption, they'll send you a notice with your unique Exemption Certificate Number (ECN). If you have an exemption application pending from the Marketplace, you should wait until you receive either the denial or approval before continuing. If your application is pending and you need to file your federal tax return, see the Instructions for Form 8965.

Information You'll Need

  • Filing status.
  • Whether you can claim any dependents.
  • Your adjusted gross income (or the type and amount of income received during the year) for the tax year.
  • The adjusted gross income (or the type and amount of income received during the year) of your dependents that are required to file a tax return.

The tool is designed for taxpayers that were U.S. citizens or resident aliens for the entire tax year for which they're inquiring. If married, the spouse must also have been a U.S. citizen or resident alien for the entire tax year. For information regarding nonresidents or dual-status aliens, please see Publication 519, U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens.
