Question: Husband stays in CA with a valid working visa. Wife and a child currently live in outside of the US and do not hold any valid US visa. They are going to come to the US with valid visa later this year. Can the husband apply for CoveredCA at this time? If so, should he apply as "single" or "married"? Should the income be calculated as 1 household or family of 3
Answer: The husband should apply as a 1-person household. His wife and children are not part of the household at this time. When they arrive in the US with legal residence status, he should change his application to reflect the new household status.
