Who is considered a “Household?”

For most families a household includes yourself plus the number of people that you claim as dependents on your income tax return. This may include children, parents, or other relatives who qualify as dependents on your tax return. Children of divorced parents are counted in the household of the parent who claims them as a dependent (even if the other parent has to pay for the child’s health insurance).

Do not include children who you do not claim as a dependent, even if they still live at home.

You NEED health insurance

Health insurance is important because it protects people from the high costs of medical care.

When you buy health insurance, you are buying it alongside many other people. You then are all members of the health insurance plan. Each member pays into the plan. If you or any member needs expensive medical care, you won’t have to pay the true cost of care. The money will come from the plan that you have been paying into.

Health insurance covers the costs of medical services, medicines, hospital care, and special equipment when you are sick. Health insurance is also very important when you are not sick. Most health insurance pays for immunizations and yearly check-ups for children and adults. It may also pay for health screenings, counseling, and more.
