This is a tricky question.

If you want to give your insurance card for your individual insurance plan to a family member so they can use it at the doctor, that’s no bueno. It’s illegal. Read our blog post on why.

However, if you want to add your family members to your insurance plan, at a price, you are able to do this. The best way to do this is ask your insurance broker, HR person at work (if you got insurance through work) or your carrier. They can tell you how much it will cost and will help you get your family members signed up!
