Hi I have been through this for 2019 return.

If you look at page 3 of MA form 1, you will see a penalty is accessed for the tapyer (s).

Go to State & Local/Massachusetts Schedule HC, enter info there so the system knows they are covered under a qualified insurance, the penalty will be removed.

PTO is not designed to read minds.  It's a reminder that you should complete the input for Sch HC because individual mandate still applies in MA.

To be clear, it's not the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act -- it is from state legislation passed before that.  I think they call it Romneycare, after the governor at the time.
