Does Health Insurance Coverage Continue After A Divorce?
In many cases the person who was the spouse of a member of a group health insurance plan remains eligible for benefits under the plan, without additional premium and as if the divorce judgment had not been entered, until the remarriage of either the member or the spouse. There are other health insurance plans, however, under which eligibility ends upon the divorce judgment entering. Ultimately, however, it is the court that determines post-divorce health insurance matters, including the allocation of the cost or additional cost of health insurance coverage following a divorce.
