Q: How do I reflect this on his tax form. If I only use the 1095A form it does not reflect the coverage he had for the first 6 weeks of the year under my policy?
A: If a person is not covered under insurance for not more than 2 months, they can claim the short coverage gap extension. You can claim this exemption for your son on Form 8965. SEE BELOW:
Under ObamaCare, you are allowed one short coverage gap exemption which covers less than three months in a row without coverage each year. In other words you are exempt for two full months, but need to have coverage for at least one day of the third month.
