A person can certainly choose to drop a spouse from their coverage with one exception. If the employer is paying 100% for the employee and spouse then the employee can not opt out of coverage since it costs them nothing. You may be required to show that the spouse has alternate coverage. Check with your HR department or benefits coordinator.

Generally, your employer will allow you to remove your spouse only during an annual drop/add period. Legally, a spouse is not required to provide health insurance for the other spouse unless directed by court order. However, courts often have "standing orders" where in parties filing divorce are prevented from doing such things.
You can add your baby. But unless there was a life event with your spouse (just married, just lost job or insurance), you probably cannot add him. Check with your insurance carrier to be sure.
You probably should tell them. Most people change their beneficiary when they marry. Or add their spouse to a health policy.
I don't think so i think you need a special health insurance for that
No. Absent a court order, He is not required to provide your insurance. Bare in mind though, That as a married couple, Common law does make each spouse financially liable for the others incurred bills so long as you are a married.
In order for anyone to be covered under anyone's health insurance, they must be listed on the policy and a premium must be collected for them. If your spouse did not include their names on the plan and no premium is being collected for them, then they won't have coverage.
No, it is not illegal. If it is a group plan (through an employer), the employee could submit the enrollment change without the spouse's signature. The employer or insurer would not question it, since he or she is still married to the person. The spouse would know that he or she had been dropped when a COBRA notice arrives, assuming the employer offers COBRA coverage.
No. See link for citation.
In the U.S. and Canada, a divorce normally disqualifies the spouse from military medical benefits.
Your health insurance will not cover your pets. It will usually cover children and spouse. Pets are not considered to be human beings by insurance companies.
In general, there is no legal requirement that a spouse be insured on the other spouse's health insurance. A major exception to this general rule would be, for example, if the parties were to be divorced and a provision of the settlement agreement or judgment required otherwise.
That would not be a very nice thing to do, what you should do is write to your spouse and the insurance company, point out that you are now separated and indicating that you will no longer be paying for your spouses insurance after a fixed date in the future. This informs the insurance company of your intentions and allows your ex spouse to arrange their own health insurance.
A husband is not legally responsible to have health insurance for his wife. Many employees opt not to have health insurance for themselves. Health insurance is a voluntary election and no law exists making it otherwise. However, do be aware that any medical-related debts incurred by one spouse are considered "common" debts, and as such, the other spouse is legally required to pay for them. In the event of a divorce, said debts would be even divided between the spouses, even if only one spouse incurred them.
Only one company can pay out on the health insurance so it is a waste of money being insured twice, and also it will save you the tax you are paying on the premiums.
To my knowledge- No they cannot. It almost comes down to discrimination. If they offer insurance to one spouse then your employer shouldn't be able to turn to another person and say "sorry.. your spouse has health insurance options at her job.. denied!" You will be the one paying the premium to carry your spouse! I have honestly never heard of this happening. You should contact your corporate HR though. Hope this is helpful:) Evan
Generally, insurance companies do not allow an ex-spouse to be carried on a policy after a divorce. Children, however, are able to be carried.
the spouse should take the advantage of her husband. And she should not be strained and she should take rest.
No, but there might be a problem with the insurance provider.
It wouldn't be a good idea, because there are deductibles, co-pays, etc. not covered by Medicare.
no there is no medicare insurance for spouse. Medicare insurance covers the claims only for the self and not fore the insured persons like spouse.
