Can your wife take you off of her medical insurance plan before you are separeted if I am retired with no medical insurance of my own?


Sir, I can only quote you regarding Canadian Law that says if your wife is paying for your Medical Insurance through her job as a payroll deduction she can take you off anytime she wishes. Under Canadian Laws a wife or husband is not held responsible for the other one's health insurance needs. Hope this was helpful, but if not, perhaps you can contact the Health Insurance Board where you live. If you choose to buy insurance, then as a general rule, nobody can force you to keep buying the coverage. Yes, you can drop coverage. However, if you are paying for the coverage through IRS Section 125 with pre-tax funds through your employer, then you may (or may not, depending on the circumstances) be able to reverse your decision to reduce your pre-tax earnings.
