If you're not divorced, you're husband may still be responsible for your medical bills. Check the Family Law Code in your state...You would still be entitled to COBRA.

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.

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.

In a marriage is the husband legally responsible to have health insurance for his wife?

A husband is not legally responsible to have health insurance for his wife. Many employees opt not to have health insurance for themselves. Health insurance is a voluntary election and no law exists making it otherwise. However, do be aware that any medical-related debts incurred by one spouse are considered "common" debts, and as such, the other spouse is legally required to pay for them. In the event of a divorce, said debts would be even divided between the spouses, even if only one spouse incurred them.

However, courts often have "standing orders" where in parties filing divorce are prevented from doing such things.
