Consider:

I let my buddy who has fallen on hard times move in with me. I didn’t charge him rent of board or anything until he got a job, and got his car payment and insurance current. Then after four months He started paying me his half of everything and started paying for his won food.

I suppose he was technically my dependent, but I considered it a gift to a friend.

By this, I would be on the hook, for his health insurance too?

Damn you can’t even help out a friend now...they expect them to go to the government

If he is an unrelated adult he is not a dependent nor could be claimed as one.

No, no a friend wouldn’t qualify as a dependent for the IRS.

But if you did that for a relative you WOULD be socked by the IRS for the Obamacare penalty. Whether you claimed him as a dependent or not.
