From what I read, his ex wife would have be able to cobra her plan for 36 months after the divorce date. If his employer paid the premium on her for those 36 months , why wouldn't kasier permanente hold her responsible for the difference in insurance premium and cobra cost. She willfully used the health insurance the entire time to her benefit?
This all came about because my boyfriend was seeaking reimbursement for HSA account of $1100 that she debited out of his HSA. So the threat is that her lawyer will exposed health insurance fraud. It is a threat written between the lines. Her lawyer requested that his employer provide information on who was insured under the insurance plan that my boyfriend held for the past 2 years, which would include his ex wifes name. How does his employer answer this question without admitting fraud himself? And he seemed to be unaware either.
