Are you trying to claim a Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) on your return? From what I can tell, it seems like doing so may result in a special situation in calculating the Premium Tax Credit repayment limitation on line 28, requiring you to fill out form 8885. This doesn't seem like it'd be a common situation, so check and make sure you're not confusing the HCTC with the ACA Premium Tax Credits (PTC) or Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTC) when you answer the questions about health insurance in the software.
