No, you can get him to change the beneficiary and then the money that is claimed will be yours if it has been changed by your husband to your name.

Can anyone contest a life insurance if you are not listed as a beneficiary?

No, only the policy owner (usually the insured) can decide who the beneficiary is on a life insurance policy. Life insurance has nothing to do with a will or estate distribution after someone's death. That's why it is imperative to keep the beneficiary section updated constantly based on the life changes; too many people who get divorced forget to update their life insurance beneficiary on the policy and benefit may go to the ex-spouse. Life insurance companies are bound by the contract that is the life insurance policy to only pay the beneficiary specified on the policy. If all beneficiaries specified on the policy are deceased, then the benefit will be paid to insured's estate.
