Q: I asked my wife's attorney to add that I am not responsible for COBRA costs in a divorce decree. Does this protect me?
The use of the word anticipate confuses me as opposed to she will not pursue COBRA or will at her own expense.
Any and all expenses, including, but not limited to co-pays,
prescription medication, or any other expenses not covered by said
insurance shall be the sole responsibility of the Plaintiff.
Defendant shall cooperate with and reasonably assist Plaintiff in
obtaining insurance cards, applying for benefits, or other
administrative tasks necessary for Plaintiff to continue to qualify
for such medical/health benefits for said six (6) month period.
It is the intent of the parties that the Plaintiff shall continue
to be covered under the current health insurance policy in place
through Defendant’s employer as a spouse for six (6) months post
Decree and in accordance with Nebraska Statute section 42-372.01
(Reissue 2016). Defendant is not to take any action to enroll
Plaintiff in COBRA; Plaintiff does not anticipate pursuing COBRA
