If you both have coverage the wife's policy will be primary, and the husband's will be secondary - provided the wife is covered under the husband's policy. Submit the unpaid claims to the secondary carrier.

Can you drop your husbands insurance through his work and get your own insurance?

Yes. The best way to go about doing this would be to get quotes before the annual period in which you can enroll/disenroll, and go ahead and apply for an effective date that is the same day that you can make changes. That way, if anything stops the private company from issuing the insurance you can keep the work coverage without having any period where you are without coverage.

Aetna Life Insurance Company collect on life insurance policy?

how do i collect on my husbands life insurance ? he worked at Hughes Helicopter and was covered from 09-14-79 to11-01-00.his name was R.J. Fernandez he died 07-01-2007 You mail a copy of the death certificate to the insurance company that issued his life insurance policy. If he was only covered from 9-14-1979 to 11.01.2000 then he had no coverage when he died, 7 years after the coverage ended. Therefore, no life insurance can be collected. Depending on your late husband's particular circumstances [to which I am not privy], it might still be worth contacting the company in the event there were any benefits due by way of superannuation arrangements.
