DOMESTIC PARTNERS SAMPLE

For purposes of determining benefit eligibility in our manual, a domestic partner is considered a spouse. A domestic partner is loosely defined as two individuals who are co-inhabitants of a single residence who share expenses, bank accounts and who do not use this definition for the sole purpose of obtaining health coverage for the employee's domestic partner.

Whether an insurance carrier will acknowledge a domestic partnership application will be determined by each carrier independently.
