You can refinance without the spouse but you will need their consent to do so. If the spouse is on the title of the home, the answer is "no". If the spouse is on the existing mortgage the answer is "no". If the spouse is not on title you need to indicate on the loan application that you are married, and if you don't is fraud.

While there might be a state law somewhere that allows it, I would be surprised. A separation does not remove the duty of each spouse to support the other.

A person can certainly choose to drop a spouse from their coverage with one exception.

Usually divorce (to drop the other party) or marriage. Otherwise you may have to wait until open enrollment to drop.

Again, check first before you do anything.

Can a spouse cancel your health insurance before the divorce?

I believe you are both responsible for any bills incurred (such as health care costs) until you are divorced, so in some cases it would behoove a spouse to keep coverage on the other spouse so that they don't end up responsible for a large bill in the case of an accident or serious illness. However, if there is a separation agreement with a clause about neither party being responsible for any debts incurred after the signing of the agreement, one may be able to drop their spouse from insurance without issue.
