Can I add my domestic partner to my health insurance?

Domestic Partners cannot be afforded benefits by a Massachusetts municipality.  This is due to two reasons:

  1. Under Section 2 of M.G.L. 32B there is no definition of covered dependents which acknowledges “Domestic Partners”. (More here)
  2. The Connors Decision was a decision by the Massachusetts Supreme Court which struck down the Executive Order by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino offering full benefits to Domestic Partners in the City of Boston. (More here)
