Same-Sex Couples   

Can I enroll in health insurance with my spouse?

Yes, you and your spouse can enroll together through the Marketplace. If you file your federal taxes jointly with your spouse, you can also apply jointly for financial help to help make your insurance more affordable. And you can enroll in any “family” or “spousal” plan offered through the Marketplace. Health insurers that offer these plans must allow legally married same-sex spouses to enroll as a family.

This doesn’t apply, however, for couples in a domestic partnership or civil union. Rules about family coverage for these types of relationships vary by state and insurer, so explore your options to ensure that the coverage you buy is appropriate for your family’s needs.

We encourage you to take advantage of free help (either in-person or by phone) from a trained assister to help you consider your options.
