Welcome to H&R Block Community.
Since you have a insurance through the MarketPlace and may have already received part of your premium tax credit, you need to fill out a Form 8962 instead of the form 8885. If you are using the either of the H&R Block program, the interview section will assist you in filing out this form. You will need a copy of your 1095-A to complete this section.
I hope this helps you out! Please ask if you have any further questions.
