Adult Child in Household?

By on | No Comments

Question; My daughter is 26 and will be needing her own insurance. She lives at home but files her own income tax and is not claimed on ours. Does she apply as a household of 1 or do all household members have to be put on her application.

Answer: Yes. If your adult child files a tax return, she would apply for coverage through Covered California as a one-person household. Her income alone will determine her eligibility for premium assistance or Medi-Cal.
