Generally in New York, a dependent spouse who is covered by the health insurance of a former spouse is no longer entitled to coverage by the former spouse's health insurance upon entry of the judgment of divorce.
However, the dependent spouse may be entitled to purchase health insurance through a COBRA option, if available, if not the dependent spouse may have to secure his or her own insurance.
