Medical Support

The FSD or local child support agency will also ask the court to require the non­custodial parent to provide health insurance coverage, including vision and dental care, for the child(ren). The court will order the non­custodial parent to maintain health coverage for the child(ren), if it is available at reasonable cost. In most cases, the cost is considered reasonable if the coverage is employment­related group health insurance or other group health insurance. If coverage is not available at a reasonable cost, the court`s order for support will state that the parent must obtain health insurance coverage if it becomes available at a reasonable cost.
