2021 taxes & the Health Insurance Marketplace®

No health coverage for 2021

Unlike in past tax years, if you didn’t have coverage during 2021, the fee no longer applies. This means you don’t need an exemption in order to avoid the penalty.
Important: Some states have their own individual health insurance mandate
If you live in a state that requires you to have health coverage and you don’t have coverage (or an exemption), you’ll be charged a fee when you file your 2021 state taxes. Check with your state or tax preparer.
You will NOT get Form 1095-A unless you or someone in your household had Marketplace coverage for all or part of 2021.
