Generally speaking each spouse is required to support the other. But that support is based on necessity, which means that if the other husband is able to purchase his own insurance legally, she can indeed drop him from coverage. She cannot drop him from coverage if he is financially unable to provide his own support, or if the separation agreement clearly states that she is responsible for his medical insurance until divorce is granted. Otherwise there is no law forcing her to keep him under coverage.
