- Include yourself
- Include your spouse* or domestic partner
- Include anyone you plan to claim as a tax dependent for the year you want coverage\n
- Include any child under 21 you take care of and who lives with you, even if not your tax dependent
- Include your spouse and tax dependents even if they don't need health coverage
*You don't have to include your spouse if you are a victim of domestic abuse, domestic violence, or spousal abandonment.
