What are the Deferred Action Health Insurance Requirements?

I am a dreamer under deferred action if i wasn’t insured for the 2014 year am i going get penalized and charged a fee when i file my taxes? When i spoke with someone from the IRS they said that i am because i am considered a resident even though i explain to them what the deferred action was and that i wasn’t a resident or a citizen. Two years ago when i first got my permit to work here legally and i tried to apply for medical i got denied because they told me i wasn’t a resident or a citizen so now i’m confused.

If you are lawfully present alien, than you are subject to the Individual Mandate and you are eligible for cost assistance on the Marketplace (assuming you meet the other eligibility criteria). If you are not lawfully present and are not required to file taxes, than you are not usually eligible for cost assistance (some state like California have made exceptions), but you are also not required to have minimal essential coverage.

I am one of the dreamers who got the DACA for be able to work here on the United States . my question is, where can i apply for an medical insurance for the DACA students?


You can and should start at healthcare.gov. Although cost assistance may not be an option, you can use healthcare.gov for guidance on your options and they can help you enroll outside of open enrollment via special enrollment.
