A new plan.

Spouses may opt to secure coverage for themselves and their dependent children through the Affordable Care Act or by opting-in to an employer-sponsored health insurance plan they had previously not taken advantage of. Divorce is considered a life-changing event, meaning an ex-spouse does not have to wait for an open enrollment period to obtain a new policy.

Child support concerns.

Health insurance is considered a form of child support. As a result, the parent who pays for insurance and medical expenses will be entitled to reimbursement by the other parent. Spouses may consider creative options such as splitting two or more children between parent plans, setting up a rotation for paying premiums, or relinquishing certain assets as payment toward a minor child’s medical bills.
