My ex husband wishes to add my son to his United Healthcare Obama plan even though I have insurance for my son through my work. Can he still enroll him on his even though I have insurance for him? I would prefer to have his insurance through my work.


If you or a family member have access to employer coverage they must take employer coverage and can't get cost assistance under ObamaCare. This means a dependent can't go on a Marketplace plan if they have coverage options through an employer unless employer coverage would cost more than 9.5% of household income for dependent-only coverage.
