Insurance through husbands job
May 16, 2011

My fiance and I are planning on marrying, and was wandering if he was obligated to put me on his insurance at work (health & life insurance policies)? If so, does insurance typically increase once they are aware of my condition?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

He's not obligated to cover you. The cost for your coverage would be the same as any other employee would pay to add a spouse.
