How Divorce Affects Your Health Insurance Benefits

Health insurance during the temporary phase between
the time that that you file for divorce or your
spouse files for divorce, and the final stage, absolutely you can
stay on your spouse’s health insurance and most courts won’t blink an eye at
granting you an order being able to stay on that insurance policy so you don’t have to go
out and get your own. Now once you divorce all insurance
companies will require that only the employee if it’s an
employer-sponsored plan be able to remain on the insurance
policy. If you get a legal separation there are
insurance companies that will allow you to remain on your spouse’s policy but again it’s
something that should be checked with each insurance company.
