“I’m divorcing, what are my rights with health insurance?”
July 29, 2014
Question: My husband and I are planning to divorce. He carries the medical insurance through his employer for us both. Can I stay on his insurnace? Do I carry COBRA? What are my legal rights?
Answer: You definitely need to talk to a divorce lawyer to protect your rights on this. Depending on the settlement, sometimes it can be one of the terms of settlement, ensuring spousal coverage after the divorce for a determined period of time. Again thought there are so many conditions and issues with this please discuss this with your divorce attorney. If there’s a diverse interest, you should have your own attorney separate from your husbands.
