If I divorce him can he still get coverage?
Jul 16, 1997
My husband was diagnosed with HIV and he's on my insurance plan at work. If I divorce him can he still get coverage?
Response from Ms. Franzoi
If you are covered under an employer's plan, are currently covering your husband as a dependent under your plan, and your employer has at least 20 employees, your husband, upon your divorce or legal separation, will be eligible for up to 36 months of COBRA coverage under your plan. You must notify your employer within 30 days of your divorce or legal separation in order for your husband to be eligible for COBRA continuation coverage.
