Kids live with me but their step mom wants to add them to their health insurance.
This is a question for the insurance company. It depends on the policy. If it is the cheapest option there is no harm in allowing the change (unless of course you have a court order that says otherwise).
If there is a court order that states the children must be on your insurance, then no. However, if there is no such order and you have no objection to it, then sure. She would need to check with her insurance company to see if she is allowed to do so as well per their policy.
This answer should not prevent you from speaking to a lawyer and disclosing all facts about your case. Additionally, it should not prevent you from filing to see if you are eligible. Please seek an attorney for an initial consultation to review all the specific facts of your case.
