- Are under the age of 65 and have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance);
- Enrolled in Medicare Part A for the first time in 2016; or
- Had Medicare Part A for part of 2016.

If you had Medicare Part A for all 12 months of 2016, you’ll just need to check a box on your Federal income tax return indicating you had qualifying health coverage.
