Family membership

Dependent certification procedures apply for any changes involving dependents—for example, when a family member is added as a dependent due to marriage, birth, or cohabitation with one or more parents, or when a family member is removed as a dependent due to employment, death, or living in different residences. Persons aged 75 or older who join the Medical Care System for the Advanced Elderly are not eligible to be dependents under the Health Insurance Association.
Certification as a dependent requires that the person in question meet certain criteria for family relationship and income.
