Question: My husband has a new job. Can I cancel my current health insurance with my company and enroll with his new health insurance plan?
Answer: Your husband’s new job is not an acceptable reason for you to opt out of your own employer-sponsored health plan. You may do that at the next open enrollment period. However, you can’t be added to your husband’s health plan until his plan’s open enrollment period unless you have a “qualifying event” like loosing your coverage through termination. These rules may seem arbitrary are in place to protect employers and insurers against adverse selection.
