California Health Insurance and Domestic Partners

A common question that I receive each week is "Will my domestic partner and I qualify as a two party applicant" In California, the answer is "yes". For several years now, California Health Insurance carriers have been required to recognize domestic partners, straight or gay. Unmarried couples that live together can purchase health insurance at a two party rate.

To apply for Health Insurance as "Domestic Partners", simply complete a single application, using the younger individual as the primary applicant and the older second party as the co-applicant. In some cases the insured may ask for you to sign a supplemental application page stating that you are "Domestic Partners".
