No you do not have to cancel either insurance.. You are what we call in the industry "dually covered". That means that your secondary(husbands) insurance will pay all or most of your copays ( for prescriptions and office visits) and most of your deductible ( if you have one)... Therefore, make sure that all your providers accept both insurances and you are all set to go!!!! If you are wondering if you can cancel your insurance with your job, you will have to call your group administrator to find out because there are special times during the year that you have to make any changes to the policy.. such as cancelling coverage, adding a new baby or removing an ex spouse.

Can a husband cancel his wife's health insurance if not legally separated?

If not legally separated, you will probably have to wait until open enrollment through your employer to cancel her insurance. If you do get legally separated, you can cancel insurance as you have had "change in status." Usually insurance companies will process changes outside of open enrollment when you have a change in family status. An example of this would be getting married, having a baby, or getting divorced/legally separated.

Can i cancel the gap insurance from the dealer if you have insurance on it?

Usually you can cancel the Gap insurance anytime you want. You should be refunded money too depending on when you purchased it. Gap Insurance has nothing to do with Auto Insurance. Gap Insurance is just something that you purchase "usually from the dealer" to protect you if your upside down in your loan. Say you owe $5,000 on your vehicle, but it's only worth $3,000. If you have an accident and it's totaled out. Your insurance company is going to give you only what it's worth. So you would get $3,000 from your insurance company. The Gap insurance would cover the "GAP" between what is owed and what you got from the insurance company. Because your still going to owe the bank another $2,000 for a vehicle that is totaled out. Gap insurance can sometimes be difficult to cancel, and they sometimes they will give you a hard time about it.. But just read the paperwork that you got when you purchased your vehicle, usually it tells you on there how to cancel and if there are any fees involved. Just keep in mind that Gap Insurance is not Auto Insurance, so you would need to have Auto Insurance regardless if you have the Gap Insurance. Good Luck!

Why would the wife want to do that? Check the Family Law Code in your State - she's probably responsible for any debts that her husband incurs. Check with the Insurance Company - they will probably write a separate policy for the husband.

Can an insurance company cancell your cottage insurance without reason?

No. Why would an insurance company cancel your policy without any reason? Depending on the state that you live in and the regulations in your state will determine how and under what circumstances a company would cancel your insurance policy. Normally they have to give you a certain amount of notice before cancelling your policy. For instance, if you fail to pay your premium the notice would be 10 days from the date they mail you the notice. If you have excessive claims or fail to maintain the property, they would have to non-renew the policy meaning they could not cancel it until the next renewal date and must give you 60 days notice for the non-renewal. Dates and reason vary based on the State you live in and the regulations.

If the hazard insurance from your mortgage agreement was cancelled do you get a refund and the mortgage payments go down?

Mortgage insurance is required when you have less than 20% down or equity in your home. Once you reach that percentage of ownership, you can cancel the insurance. Hazard insurance is different. Most Morgagees (Lenders) have a clause that forces you to continually have hazard insurance without lapses or they will assign insurance for you. The assigned insurance generally is more expensive than all other alternatives. If you cancel your current hazard insurance you would likely receive a refund but it would be unwise to cancel without getting insurance from another company... and especially unwise to spend the money. Your payments would not go down, but likely up because of the assigned insurance.

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.

When can a car insurance company cancel you?

Insurance CancelAn insurance company can cancel you anytime they want to as long as they have a legitimate reason to do so, and they are required BY LAW to send you WRITTEN NOTICE to advise you of any cancellation should one occur. This not does not apply to monthly bill statements because within the bill statement it says that your policy will cancel should they not receive a payment. This is the most common reason for cancellations, when people don't pay their monthly insurance bill. Another reason you may be cancelled the company can consider you high risk. If you hve had too many accidents or have have made too many claims with a certain time period, they can cancel you because they feel it would actually cost them more to insure you versus insurance premiums you would pay to them.

Also, if the offense is serious enough, you can be sued or possibly prosecuted.
