Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and tax attorney and I can help you with this.

There is no requirement that you must provide health insurance to a dependent if you claim that person as a dependent on your tax return. A tax dependent is considered in your household though when calculating subsidies on the health insurance market place. He may be required to pay the individual mandate penalty however for not providing health insurance for his tax dependent.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything else. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!

I live in the State of Oregon. I was divorced in Nov 2016. Im in need of a tax document in order to complete my taxes for 2016. It's 1095-A form. My ex husband has the form. I'm unable to get him to provide me with a copy. I have tried to attain a copy through the Market place. This document is needed for the IRS. I can't get a copy. I will be in a bunch of legal trouble with the IRS if I'm not able to get this document to file with my taxes for 2016. I'm now needed to take my ex husband to court to get him to release a copy for my 1095-A that he's holding hostage from me. I can't afford a lawyer. I was going to go online though my county for file to take him to court to get him to release this document. But I don't know if I file this under divorce court? And what form to I file it under?
