Affordable Care Act Health Insurance may be best option after divorce

Keeping all family members covered by health insurance is usually a shared goal in collaborative cases. If both spouses have insurance available through employment, that provides options.  Getting divorced allows signing up for insurance outside of “open enrollment” periods.  Some employers allow an ex-spouse to remain on the family coverage.

If neither of these options are available, the Affordable Care Act may be the best choice.  Federal tax credits will help pay the premium for a single person earning (or expected to earn in 2015) approximately $11,600 to $46,600.  Alimony counts as “earnings.”  Coverage may not be denied because of pre-existing conditions.  Preventive care is free (no copay).  For more information:
