If my husband moved out of our home without my knowing and will not sign separation or divorce papers, can I drop his insurance coverage?

He wants me to continue to carry his and his 2 daughter’s health insurance. I told him I am dropping it as I cannot afford to pay for it any longer. When I called the insurane company to cancel, they told me that I cannot cancel their insurance as it is against the law to do so. Is that true?

Under the laws of all states in this country you cannot unilaterally cancel the insurance that you have written about. Given the circumstances that you are writing about I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney to assist you in the matter you have written about to see what you legal options are.
