How Long Do I Need To Keep My Spouse on Health Insurance?

During the duration of the divorce proceeding, you must keep everything status quo, as it was before the divorce proceeding was commenced.

If your spouse was covered under your health insurance policy before the divorce proceeding began, he or she must remain on until the divorce proceeding has concluded.

If your health insurance plan has a COBRA policy, your spouse may elect to enroll in same for whatever period of time your insurance policy permits after the divorce has concluded.
