    If your parent is age 65 or older, they qualify for Medicare so you cannot typically add them onto your healthcare coverage at that point. Depending on the particular health plan you are enrolled in, you may or may not be able to add your parent onto that plan. Check the summary page in your health plan and see what it says or you can check with your health plan administrator to confirm whether they allow parents as dependents on your family plan.

    If your health plan allows this, here are other qualifications you will have to meet with the IRS. You must already be claiming your parent as a dependent on your federal tax filing. The IRS dependent qualifications include: Your parent is under age 65, makes under $3650 per year gross income, you provide more than half of your parents' support for the year.
