Can a man keep his divorced wife on his health insurance if she can not work and can not get her own due to health reasons?
You need to call the insurance company that you are currently insured through and ask them to put her on a separate policy. And then you still pay for it. You may lose the family discount, but at least she may still be insured. Answer If it is a group policy, no. Coverage would be for spouses,… and unmarried eligible dependents only. If he has a family (non group) policy that they are both covered under, they should be able to "split" the policy and each have their own separate policy, not subject to underwriting again. The combined premiums will go up, but the insurance company doesn't care who pays them, as long as it isn't an employer. Don http://mtnhealthinsurance.com ( Full Answer )

Without some form of health insurance, you are responsible for paying each and every medical bill that you incur. This could be as little as $45.00 for a doctor's office visit or into hundreds upon thousands of hospital bills.
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 depends on what you mean by "on" the spouse's health insurance plan. Most employer-sponsored plans, subject to Federal and/or state law, do not permit a spouse to be carried after divorce as part of the employee's family coverage. However, under Federal and most state laws, a former spouse i…neligible for coverage on any other employer-sponsored plan is entitled to continuation coverage for a period of 36 months after divorce, similar to the coverage a terminated employee is entitled to have for 18 months, provided the former spouse pays the premiums -- including the employer's "share" or subsidy of an employee's premium. Bottom line: You can continue to be covered by a spouse's plan -- but as a separate participant with an additional, and usually very big, premium. . This answer does not constitute legal advice. To obtain legal advice, consult with an attorney. This is especially important in divorce and family law matters, in which outcomes are often peculiar to the particular facts and circumstances of the case.. Neal J.

The 2 types of insurance serve different purposes, although in one respect, there is some overlap. At its most basic, health insurance is intended to pay to or on behalf of the insured sums of money for medical bills incurred because of sickness or injury. Auto insurance includes several diffe…rent coverages. The one most closely like health insurance is frequently referred to as "no fault coverage". It pays a percentage of the insured's medical expenses and lost wages if he/she was injured as a result of an auto collision. Benefits are paid irrespective of who caused the collision. Health insurance is not currently required by law. In contrast, anyone who wishes to register a vehicle is required to comply with the state's "financial responsibility law" which requires the registrant to have and to maintain certain types and amounts of auto insurance.

Yes, you can ask the care provider to bill you and not your health insurance. You will probably have to go to great effort to do this, as all of their systems are geared to bill the insurer. If you want to make sure that the insurer does not get the bill (which would have your diagnosis and treatmen…t also), your safest approach is to withhold your plan ID number. The health insurer cannot use information about your health to sell you things, nor can they give your health data to someone else. They can use it only to pay your bills and run the health plan. If they want to use it for any other purpose, they have to get your written permission. There is always the slight chance that the health insurer's system will get hacked, but to forego your health insurance benefit seems like an expensive way to protect your privacy.
