Most health insurance companies required that you have a legal right to carry the child on your insurance. Being the child’s parent, legal guardian or required through a divorce decree to carry the child on your health insurance is usually required. If you have a child living in your home that you do not have legal custody of might mean you need seek legal custody in order to provide health insurance. Not knowing more about your situation and the relationship of the child to you, I can only make a few suggestions. You can always buy a separate policy from some of the leading health care providers in your state if your budget allows. To get a quote on health insurance policy, click here.
