Can my health insurance company cancel our coverage if I shared my medication with my spouse?

I have a nurse care manager assigned to our case. My husband was sick and I gave him my leftover antibiotics and I told her that. He recovered, no harm was done. Can they cancel our policy?

From what you have written about sharing your antibiotics with your spouse who is not on your health plan, the sharing of medication with a person who has not been prescribed such is not a good idea. However, the sharing would not give rise to the cancellation of your medical insuramce policy by your carrier.
