It is not illegal for a spouse to cancel health insurance before another spouse files divorce. However, if a current legal separation agreement is in place that allows for health insurance, then it can not be cancelled.

Yes, it can be covered in the divorce agreement, from what I have been told. Working in physician's offices, I've seen it on health insurance plans. Personally, I have also known women who are still covered under their ex-husband's health insurance as a part of their divorce agreement. Different insurances might have different rules, so you should always check with your insurance company first before doing anything else.
