Post separation support


#1

I just heard about this at a company meeting. It is actually illegal for a spouse to keep an ex-spouse on an insurance plan once they are divorced. If they are not yet divorced he/she can be covered until divorce is final. If the court mandates that one spouse covers the other’s insurance costs then they have to provide that outside of the plan buy buying insurance or I guess reimbursing the ex-spouse.

Once they are divorced the rules of the health insurance plan will no longer allow her to be covered.

I have a friend whose husband wants her to pay for her cost of his company supplied health insurance. My friend is disabled and wants to know can her ex spouse drop her from his health insurance coverage?
