If my wife and I have Obamacare and my wife just passed, can I drop her from the policy and continue just with me on that policy or do I have to get a new policy? What is the process? Will my rate be cheaper?
If you are on a family plan and someone loses eligibility for the plan, you get a 60 day special enrollment window to switch to an individual plan. This can be because someone turned 26, a spouse or family member passed, you get divorced or for any other qualifying life change. The same thing works the other way around too. If you get married, have a baby, or adopt you can switch from an individual plan to a family plan.
