That's really a question for a family law attorney. Rather than worry about it - why not just purchase coverage for him.

If you are talking about expenses incurred after the marriage has taken place, then YES, your assets are at risk. Medical expenses are considered a "common" debt of the marriage, making both parties responsible for paying them. In the event of a divorce, the responsibility of common debts is subject to the divorce agreement.

Why should you have health insurance?

As medical care advances and treatments increase, health care costs also increase. The purpose of health insurance is to help you pay for care. It protects you and your family financially in the event of an unexpected serious illness or injury that could be very expensive. In addition, you are more likely to get routine and preventive care if you have health insurance. You need health insurance because you cannot predict what your medical bills will be. In some years, your costs may be low. In other years, you may have very high medical expenses. If you have health insurance, you will have peace of mind in knowing that you are protected from most of these costs. You should not wait until you or a family member becomes seriously ill to try to purchase health insurance. We also know that there is a link between having health insurance and getting better health care. Research shows that people with health insurance are more likely to have a regular doctor and to get care when they need it.

Requirements For Texas Car Insurance?

Each state in the United States has their own set of requirements for residents when it comes to car insurance. All Texas drivers are required to carry proof of car insurance in their vehicle. State law enforcement personnel will ask for that proof of insurance when a driver is pulled over in either a safety check or traffic stop. The minimum car insurance requirements for Texas drivers include the following: $20,000 for medical expenses for an individual involved in an accident $40,000 for medical expenses for multiple individuals in an accident $15,000 for property damage coverage These are the state mandated minimum liability coverage, which pays for the necessary medical expenses and vehicle repair expenses of the other party or parties following an accident the insured caused. Of course, these minimums may or may not cover the costs of repairing the victim's vehicle or their physical person, and the insured may be subject to a lawsuit depending on the injured victim's wishes and capabilities. Optional coverage that is recommended for drivers who can afford it includes purchasing a comprehensive and collision policy rider. These will pay for repairs to the insured's vehicle and are often required riders by the financial institution if the insured carries a loan on the vehicle he or she is driving. Another optional coverage rider is uninsured or under insured motorist coverage, which provides funds to repair the insured's vehicle or cover his or her medical expenses in the event that they are involved in an accident with a driver who lacks insurance or has inadequate insurance. This protection is a stop gap measure that many drivers add to their policies to protect themselves from becoming the unfortunate victims of an accident with an individual who cannot pay. Insurance companies are often willing to combine multiple vehicles and give discounts to individuals who have combined insurance coverage policies, such as home, boat, and motorcycle on a single account. This is a method many families use to reduce their overall insurance costs.


How would catastrophic medical insurance be described?
