Your daughter would be exempt from this because she is not lawfully present in the US.
You have to be present in the US in order to be required to have health insurance.
When you file your 2014 return in 2015 there will be a form to attach, and she would just mark on that form that she's not present in the US
You can read about these requirements, HERE
She comes to visit frequently.... I know on her forms now she has to specify how long she has spent in the US to qualify for being a foreign resident and having her UK income exempted. Is that the same criteria for "not present" and not needing to confirm insurance?
Well, she's not lawfully present in the US if she spends less than 183 days per year here.
That sounds very similar to the number they use for qualifying to exempt her UK income. Thanks
