Health Insurance and Divorce
How will a divorce affect your health insurance coverage? During marriage, it's common for one spouse to maintain health coverage for the entire family through his or her group health insurance plan at work. After a divorce, coverage for the other spouse and the children could terminate. State and federal laws offer protection to families in danger of losing health-care coverage, especially to children. But it's important to re-examine your family's health insurance situation before a divorce occurs to avoid serious complications afterward.
