Court-Ordered Medical Support
Court-Ordered Medical Support (not medical bills)
The Child Support Enforcement unit can assist you with the enforcement of court ordered medical support if the non-custodial parent is ordered to cover your child's health care needs and if insurance is available at a reasonable cost.
In some cases, we are able to establish an order that includes a provision for health insurance coverage and enrollment.
Steps Taken to Enforce Court-Ordered Medical Support
- A Health Insurance Premium notice is sent to the current employer requesting that the non-custodial parent include the child (ren) on the policy.
- If the non-custodial parent's employer is unknown, enforcement of insurance is delayed until a current employer is found.
Limitations of Service:
Jefferson County is unable to provide the following services:
- Interpret health insurance policies or assist in the filing of claims.
- Collect on medical bills or other out of pocket medical expenses. You have the option to pursue this on your own or by contacting an attorney.
