    Is this possible, or is this only an option for same sex couples? For Illinois?

    Just have sex with him then you'll get coverage.

    It's not gay if your doing it for medical coverage.

    I'm a woman, and he's a man.

    Yeah, don't really want to. We're committed, own a home, and cars together, and may eventually get married, but don't want to just to get coverage.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    I doubt you can get benefits in a heterosexual domestic partnership....I could be wrong. Call Teamcare and ask. A big reason why "domestic partnerships" for gay and lesbians existed was because up until somewhat recently....they couldn't get legally married, or their state didn't recognize gay marriage. If you're that concerned about spousal benefits...get married.

    I get why there is an option for gay couples. I just don't feel like getting married yet, but I am kind of tired of paying $300 a month on health insurance. And, no I am not "that girl" who won't commit, but wants the benefits, just feel like I want to do it when we want, and not because it financially makes sense.

    yup.

    I believe "partners" is for same sex because they can't get married.
    If and when all states recognize same-sex marriage, the "partner" will go away period.
    If you want insurance, get married.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    When I was on active duty there were people who would get married "on paper" just for the benefits.

    When was the last time you were "active"?
    And sometimes, it is a duty.
    Ask my wife.

    Would it work if she just claimed transgender but left the plumbing unchanged?
