Forgot to check the box on line 61 about healthcare - should we file an amended return?

We skipped over the line completely, even though we did have full coverage for the entire year. Our 1040 has been accepted by the IRS. Not sure how to proceed. Thanks in advance for the advice!

Yes, if the box is not checked, they will assume you had no coverage and assess the fine for not having compliant health care coverage.
