I was covered by my parents’ health insurance until September 2018, and then I enrolled in my own health insurance plan. My insurance is a HDHP, and I have a HSA. Will I owe a health insurance penalty for failure to maintain coverage?
You won’t be subject to a health insurance penalty if all of these are true:
- You established your own coverage within three months after you lost coverage under your parents’ plan.
- You didn’t establish the health savings account (HSA) until the high-deductible health plan (HDHP) was in place. Also, you only contributed to it while the HDHP was in place.
- You’ve remained covered only by the HDHP and other permitted coverage.
