Spouse passing and ACA.

My wife passed away in April 2017. She would have had ACA coverage all year otherwise. My 1095-C is check marked for Jan - Apr. Do I file and say that she was covered "all year" or "partial coverage" due to how the 1096-C has it marked? Does this create any type of penalty since I do not see an area this allows me to explain why she was not covered all year.

Re: Spouse passing and ACA.

If she was covered by insurance each month she was alive in 2017, I would say she had coverage all year.


Very sorry for your loss.
