The provision for responsibility applies to individuals of all ages, including children.
The adult or married couple who can claim a child or another individual as a dependent for federal income tax purposes is responsible for making the payment if the dependent does not have coverage or an exemption.
Yes, if you claim a dependent you are responsible for their health coverage. Unless she had minimum health coverage during the year you will pay a penalty. You would use form 8965 when you file.
You only make a payment for the months you or a member of your household did not have coverage or qualify for a coverage exemption.
