Do I need to enroll in aca when I have blue card? Will I be charged on my taxes for no insurance with blue card?


The BlueCard is a card given to those enrolled in a PPO plan through certain insurance providers that allows them to see doctors in other states. If you have this insurance that includes a Blue Card, then you would not need to enroll through the Exchange, and would be qualifying insurace. If you are talking about a different Blue Card, then we would need more clarification to let you know if you would owe a penalty.
