The trial court may order one party to pay a reasonable amount of medical insurance premiums for the other as part of an alimony award, provided it is not an open-ended obligation.
Without specific pleadings requesting that health insurance be provided by the payor spouse, it is error for the court to order a payor to maintain health insurance through employment, or to pay the spouse in lieu of maintaining it.
A party formerly covered by a spouse’s group health insurance plan may elect, under specified conditions (i.e., at least 20 employees, limited duration, etc.) to continue coverage.
