  • You'd have to check with your insurance on the qualifications for dependents. That's going to vary from insurance company I don't think the state you live in has anything to do with it. My SO can not place my son on his insurance unless he adopts him. Both of my parents insurance defines dependent as related through blood or adoption, so a step child would not be covered on theirs either. Look at what your insurance states for qualifying dependent. GL

  • When I was working, I carried the health insurance. I was able to put my step daughter on the plan. We live in Ohio. I would call and find out.
