Many large companies these days offer insurance for a "significant other" instead of a spouse. Speak to the insurance company directly for this information.

This is possible, but there are some issues to consider: 1) If the employer group is purchasing their health insurance from a carrier, there will likely be state laws and carrier rules to this. Each state regulates the insurance carriers within their state.

2) If this is a large company of 300+ employees, they probably 'self-insure.' This exempts them from state insurance laws and the employer gets to make most of the decisions.

3) WARNING: IF the employer pays any portion of your premium, they are required by federal law to consider the amount of money that they (the employer) pay towards your (the significant other) insurance premiums as taxable income to your boyfriend.

For example, if the employer pays 50% of the cost for dependents and the premium cost for adding you is $300 per month, then the employer pays $150 and your boyfriend will have $150 per month deducted from his pay. But he will also have the income taxes on the $150 the employer contributes deducted, too.

There is a complex reasoning the fed gov't has for requiring this. It has to do with the fact that significant others are not afforded the same tax status as spouses.

Does your significant other have health or life insurance benefits if you have been employed by Ford and a member of the UAW for over 18 years?

You need to check the terms and conditions of your policies. A significant other generally does not qualify for any benefits of your health policy. A spouse, on the other has the option to be included on your policy with an adjustment to the premium. With life insurance, the "benefit" would be to be named as beneficiary on your policy. You can name anyone you want for that.

Is a divorced man's child covered by the significant other's insurance plan?

As far as I know, in most states the significant other would have to legally adopt, or become the legal gardian of the child in question in order for that child to be classified as "dependant" on the significant other. Your significant other cannot approve medical procedures for the child, thus they cannot offer insurance on said procedures.The short answer is no. Unless that significant other was the spouse, he could not extend coverage to the child.In my case, I am the noncustodial parent & was order to carry medical coverage for my son. When I got married my wife was able to put my son on her insurance plan as well.ANSWERI have my stepdaughter on my health insurance. My insurance company allows it for children that live with us. The insurance would also cover children that don't live with us but he is court mandated to provide insurance for them.ANSWERAlso note that certain states have a "Domestic Partner" legal status, which will often allow a person's Domestic Partner to include both adults and any children in the household (regardless of legal custody) to be covered under a family policy. Domestic Partnerships were commonly (but not exclusively) used by gay couples in places where same-sex marriage was illegal.
