Health insurance is a major concern when facing a divorce. Being left without insurance can be a life disaster resulting in bankruptcy or even worse. When considering health insurance coverage, you need to consider healthcare for the spouse and the children separate.
Heath insurance for the children will typically continue under the spouse that currently covers the children. The cost of health insurance coverage is considered in the calculation of support. Uninsured healthcare costs for the children are also considered in the child support formula.
Health Insurance for the uninsured spouse will continue during the divorce. When the divorce is final, the spouse will not longer be entitled to coverage because they are an unrelated person. At that point, the spouse will need to get their own insurance or elect COBRA (insurance through the spouse’s company). COBRA can be expensive and your options should be explored before taking this coverage.
