I am a student at uaa (1/2 time 6 credits) and use student health services…am I required to have other health coverage? I don’t want to be penalized next year.
Health insurance is required for students and is based on household income. The person who files a tax return takes on the responsibility for the fee. As a student can look into both Marketplace options, staying on your parents plan until 26, Medicaid, employer based plans, and university based plans. You have lots of options, but they all depend upon income, age, and filing status.
