Are domestic partners eligible for insurance coverage?
Generally, no. Eligibility under the health insurance and vision-dental insurance programs extends to children of unmarried same-sex (but not opposite-sex) partners living in a state that does not recognize that type of marriage and who submit a declaration that they would marry if allowed to by their state. Eligibility does not extend to the partner himself or herself, however.
