Effect of Referendum 71 on Washington Life and Health Insurance

11/23/09 Gay Couples Law Blog by law student Gideon Alper:
I've gotten a couple questions from people wondering about how the new Washington "everything but marriage" law that passed earlier this month will affect their insurance ... What if you're from another state? Fortunately, the law will cover domestic partners registered in other states. But probably not marriages. So domestic partners registered in Nevada, for example, will receive full benefits of the law, but couples married in Massachusetts will not. Just another reason why, when it comes to gay relationships, names are important.
