Ohio. #17. "Husband shall maintain through his place of employment a hospitalization, dental and vision insurance policy covering Wife. The policy shall be substantially similar to the policy that is in effect with respect to coverage, deductibles and co-pays." Employer states that under COBRA, this was a qualifying event. My husband changed NOTHING and said NOTHING trying to satisfy the court order. The employer is ignoring the court order. They suddenly dropped me from the policy a year after the separation and took back all claims paid; now I am being billed. I elected the COBRA coverage but did not have the premium money, the letter said I could send it to them in 45 days but they changed the cobra initial premium from $423.03 to 3,999.00 due 6/3/2013. Should my husband pay?
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Losing health insurance in a divorce can be a cause of concern, but there are numerous protections for divorcing spouses, such as COBRA coverage.
