If your SS agreement includes benefit coverage (not all of them do), you might need to make arrangements through a third party carrier like Blue Cross. However, don't bring this up unless the other side raises it as an issue.
Most insurances won't let you cover anyone but your spouse. But, the name of the spouse is self-declared. While the benefit provider may state this, they can't find out what the actual relationship to the employee who is covered due to privacy laws.

So, unless you remarry or request that coverage be terminated for your spouse, you can potentially cover their benefits for as long as you are employed there.

I administer a company benefit plan and I know a few employees do cover their former spouses. And, why wouldn't you if there is children in the mix? Healthy parent is to the benefit of both parties.
