How can I apply for an exemption from the shared responsibility payment?


To get an exemption, members of federally recognized tribes may apply through the Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace or provide the appropriate information when they file their federal income tax return. American Indians and Alaska Natives who aren’t members of federally recognized tribes, but qualify for or get services from an Indian Health Service, or tribal or urban Indian health programs, must apply through the Marketplace and will need to verify their American Indian and Alaska Native status or qualify for services through an Indian Health Service, or tribal or urban Indian health programs.
