Who can I add to my health insurance policy?

Am I able to add my parents to my insurance policy? I just started my first job that comes with health benefits. I live at home with my parents right now and they don't have insurance.

“Congratulations on the new job!
Health insurance will only apply to:
  • you
  • your spouse
  • dependant children
It will not extend to other family members like parents and siblings.
If other members of your household need insurance, have them look into joining the marketplace. They can log into www.healthcare.gov to see what affordable options they have.
While Jerry is not a health insurance company, we can help you find low car and home insurance rates for your parents or help you add them to your policies.”
