Do I have to pay my spouse’s health insurance in alimony?

The court possesses the authority to require one party to pay for the other party’s medical insurance premiums as part of an alimony award. The court must determine that the insurance premiums are reasonable to the financial ability of the payer and the obligation must also not be for an indefinite amount of time. It is good practice to restrict the health insurance obligation to a detailed amount and duration. The court should not order such health payments unless they are specifically requested by one party.
