Extended health benefits and insurance are part of the security parents often provide to children and one spouse provides to another. Upon divorce or separation, entitlement to health and insurance benefits may change. Carmichael Law advises clients on how such benefits will continue, or cease, within the context of a broader discussion on the terms of separation. The head of the firm, Barry J. Carmichael is an Oshawa family lawyer who assists individuals with the negotiation of the terms of divorce and separation agreements throughout Ontario.

Maintaining Extended Health Benefits Following Divorce

Extended health and dental benefits cover many medical expenses not paid by OHIP. It is a common practice that separating spouses maintain their children as beneficiaries of these plans. An individual may also want to maintain his or her ex-spouse as a dependant of any such plan; the ability to do so may depend on many factors, including the specific criteria of the insurer.
