It says "Each party shall pay on-half of all reasonable unreimbursed medical, dental, optical, orthodontic expenses and other health related expenses including co-payments and deductibles under the current insurance plan. Each party will cooperate with one another in processing necessary insurance payments and, when a payment is due from one party to the other, it shall be made within thirty (30) days of demand."
I am not behind on any child support. She has been withholding the medical from me now since May 2013. There were a couple of bills prior to May that I disputed, such as the example I gave you of how she waiting until the beginning of the year to refill the prescription so that I would have to meet half of the deductible again. This particular medicine is the Epi-pens for anaphylaxis and the Epi-pens had expired in December and she waiting to refill them until February which put my childs life in danger and instead of costing me $17.50, it was now going to cost me over $200. Everything else has been paid.
So in other words she can continue to tally up expenses and wait say 2 years from now and have say $5000 by that time if not more and then all she has to do is make a demand for payment and I have to come up with that amount within 30 days of the demand?
