If you and your spouse or partner are both eligible for employee health benefits, check out each company's health insurance options during open enrollment to see which may cost you less.

But As you know very well that there are so many health insurance companies that are available. So it would be better if you first check and compare all the health insurance policies online.

Can you cancel your spouse's health insurance during a separation in Maryland?

That would not be a very nice thing to do, what you should do is write to your spouse and the insurance company, point out that you are now separated and indicating that you will no longer be paying for your spouses insurance after a fixed date in the future. This informs the insurance company of your intentions and allows your ex spouse to arrange their own health insurance.

Can an employer make you take health insurance if you already have insurance with your spouse?

If the company that you work for offers a health plan, but you need to pay for part of it. Then no, you do not have to sign up or pay for it. If your spouses plan is cheaper, which in most cases they are not, look into it. I find that companies that require their employees to share in the cost of their health care, do it anyways because it's cheaper than their spouses. One company I know has their employees pay 50% of the cost, but it's still cheaper than most spouses. Watch out if you smoke, you might be put it another bracket by yourself and other that smoke. THIS IS ILLEGAL.

If a wife loses her health insurance can she force her husband to add her to his policy which covers spouses at no extra charge until she has her own again?
