I live in Washington state. I am mandated to cover my dependent child on my health insurance by divorce decree. I qualify for health insurance through my employer but it is over $400/month and the deductible is $6000/person. I make $30,100/year and I can barely afford food due to the insurance premiums. I am allowed to claim my dependent on my tax returns every other year starting with 2015.
Would it be less expensive for me to get insurance through the exchanges and how can I do that if I don’t claim him on my income tax every other year?
