The article focuses on health insurance coverage options available for divorced people in the U.S. When a party has health insurance coverage through a former spouse's employer, the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) can be opted for by the first party once the divorce is final. The divorced couple can also inquire about their own employer's health-care plan, or purchase your own private policy through any number of health care providers.
