Medical insurance is generally determined on a case by case basis and the Court may determine if the insurance is "reasonably available" at an affordable cost. If the Court determines it is reasonably available at an affordable cost, then the Court may require that parent to maintain the insurance.
Please see the following...
In addition to child support payments, the non-custodial parent may be responsible for providing health insurance coverage for the child or children involved. The Nevada child support program aims to ensure that child support orders establish health insurance coverage as part of a child’s monthly support. The court will determine which parent is responsible for providing health insurance coverage. If this coverage is available at a reasonable cost from either parent’s employer, the court order for child support may stipulate that it be provided.
