Who do I include in my household?

A household member is anyone you include on your federal income tax return, including the tax filer, their spouse if they have one, and their tax dependents.

A household includes:

  • Yourself
  • Your spouse, if you’re married
  • Any children you are caring for who live with you
  • Anyone else you include on your federal income tax return (even if they don’t live with you)

Make sure to add all your household members, even if they aren’t seeking coverage. Anyone who lives with you that you don’t file taxes for will need to apply for health coverage on their own separate application.
