Thread Details

I got an exemption for health care last year. I even filed it on my federal return. But I got a letter back saying that I needed to revise it since they paid premiums for me. My 1095A says I had premiums paid March through August last year, and the government paid $144.00 each month. But I didn't have health care, I didn't pay any company anything. When I did the form 8962 myself with the info they have on my 1095, it's saying I owe $600 back. How can that be if I didn't pay anything and didn't even sign up for a company?

If 1095 exists, you need to amend your federal return.
If 1095 is incorrect, you need to fight it with the Marketplace. What docs were you issued to prove you were exempt?
First place to start off is Marketplace.
Have you ignored any documents you have received in the mail? They must have sent cards, letters, etc...

How do I prove to them that i didn't have health care? I was exempt, I got an exemption in January last year. But they're saying they paid for 6 months

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

You provide the exemption as a start point. Then, have you made an application? Check whether whether you have a login, forget password, etc.
You receive communication through the year and you must have applied. I am not saying you have had, but check everything as the above does not make a ton of sense.
Why was it cancelled ? If no payment, then it should have cancelled month 2?
There are pieces missing in the puzzle...

maybe some stole your info and used your healthcare benefit?

I am not a pro. It looks to me like you have two different issues. Exemptions would be for months you were not covered by a healthcare plan. The actual premiums you pay, or did not pay, for healthcare.gov plan would be based on your income. So if the AGI on your return is higher or lower than the information on healthcare.gov it may affect your refund. If you make higher than the tax bracket reported for ACA the IRS will seek repayment for part or all of the healthcare premiums.

Random example for a month of ACA:
ACA Premium = $445
Based on your income you PAY: $10
This means you get a $435 monthly Premium Tax Credit
