Can You Stay on Your Ex's Health Insurance After Divorce?

When people are about to go through a divorce, they have a plethora of questions on their minds. These questions may include: How long will the process take? Who will get custody of the kids? How will property be divided? Another question people may wonder about is whether or not they can stay on their exes' health insurance once their divorces are final. If you are wondering about this question in particular, you should know that in most cases, you will not be able to remain on your ex's health insurance. This is due to regulations by the insurance industry.

However, your children can remain covered by your ex's health insurance. If you are about to go through a divorce, you'll want to seek your own private health insurance as soon as possible. Or, if your employer offers coverage, you will want to apply so you are covered in the event of illness or a medical emergency. If you are unemployed, you can apply for COBRA, but this coverage only lasts 36 months so you'll need to decide what you will do once the time lapses.
