Domestic Partnership Eligibility?

By on | No Comments

Question: I now quality for health insurance assistance. If I enter into a domestic partnership with someone who is over 62 (opposite sex) who does not qualify for assistance, would I have to include his income to determine if I still quality for assistance?

Answer: In general, California now affords the same rights and responsibilities to registered domestic partnerships (RDP) as married individuals. However, because the IRS does not recognize RDPs as married individuals for federal tax purposes, domestic partners will continue to been seen as unmarried individuals by Covered California. Your eligibility for premium assistance is based on your income alone.
