(215 ILCS 165/15.4) (from Ch. 32, par. 609.4)
    Sec. 15.4. (1) No service plan contract of a health service plan corporation which in addition to covering the subscriber, also covers the subscriber's spouse shall contain a provision for termination of coverage for a spouse covered under the service plan contract solely as a result of a break in the marital relationship except by reason of an entry of a valid judgment of dissolution of marriage between the parties.
    (2) Every such service plan contract, other than a contract whose continuance is contingent upon continued employment or membership, which contains a provision for termination of coverage of the spouse upon dissolution of marriage shall contain a provision to the effect that upon the entry of a valid judgment of dissolution of marriage between the covered parties the spouse whose marriage was dissolved shall be entitled to have issued to her or him, without evidence of insurability, and upon application made to the corporation within 60 days following the entry of such judgment, upon the payment of the appropriate subscription fee, an individual service plan contract. Such contract shall provide the coverage then being issued by the corporation which is most nearly similar to, but not greater than, such terminated coverage. Any and all probationary or waiting periods set forth in the conversion contract shall be considered as being met to the extent coverage was in force under the prior contract.
    (3) The requirements of this Section shall apply to all contracts delivered, issued for delivery, renewed, or amended on or after the 60th day following the effective date of this Section.
