Important Information for Tribal Members from CMS Tribal Affairs
Re:
Tax Penalty Exemption for IHS Health Coverage  
 
Beginning in 2014, all individuals must have health care coverage, have a health care coverage exemption, or pay a fee (tax penalty) if you file a federal income tax return. If the only health coverage you have is through the Indian Health Services (IHS) and you do not have other insurance, such as through your employer, or through a federal health program such as the Marketplace, Medicare, Medicaid, or VA, you will need to file for an Indian Exemption to avoid paying any penalties. An Indian Exemption is available to members of federally recognized Tribes, Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act corporation shareholders, and individuals eligible to receive services from an Indian health care provider.
