what do you mean by separated? Is there a formal document filed in court or did one of you just leave?

If you don't have anything filed in the courts, your spouse had every right to drop you from the insurance - if you have a legal separation - then no...and you file contempt charges.

Not sure if MD law is any different from others, but in most states, the life change that results in being dropped from insurance coverage happens when the divorce is final, because, legally, you're married until the divorce is final. 

You may be able to find the answer on this site's laws and calculators section (follow the links on the upper right hand corner of this page, under your name).

In any case, contact an attorney.
