Managing your health care plan. “What do I need to do to ensure my health care expenses are covered?”

Your health care plan during marriage was likely a joint plan with your former spouse. You may or may not be able to continue that plan. You may also become eligible for a government plan such as Medicaid. In addition, your need for replacement of income due to illness or disability will also be affected by your divorce.

The following subtasks may assist you in managing your health care plan. You will find detailed resources for these subtasks under the links in the right column of this page.

Subtask 1: Check into maintaining your previous health care plan
