Do I have to keep my spouse on my major medical and hospitilization coverage? My enrollment period is approaching soon and we have been separated for four months now and I am ready to file for the divorce. She does have the opportunity to acquire coverage from her own employer.

  1. Are you legally separated (i.e. a Petition for legal separation was filed with the court)? The Summons which is served with a Petition for legal separation and/or dissolution/divorce contains certain restraining orders, one of which requires that health insurance be maintained as it was prior to filing until further order of the court. Since I do not know all of the facts of your case, I recommend that you consult with an attorney in your area that focuses on family law.
