Good morning. Can you please just clarify the situation. Are you saying that the child support currently taking into account and factors in the cost for health insurance and he can not add the kids to his insurance through work, which would be more affordable?

He can add the children, but the additional cost is not affordable, can that cost be deducted from the child support?

Thank you for your question.

It actually depends on what the court order states.

A medical support order is a court order for either parent or both parents to provide health care coverage (1) through their employer, (2) through the state benefit plan under HUSKY Plan, Part B, (3) by an order for cash medical support, or (4) by an order for medical and dental expenses not covered by insurance or reimbursed in any other manner pursuant to the Connecticut child support guidelines. Medical support also includes an order to repay a percentage of any un-reimbursed health care costs.

If there is no medical support order requiring the father to provide health insurance, then this need not be done until a court order is modified to order this. If an order is entered to that effect, child support services will mail the employer directly a National Medical Support Notice so that the children may be included on the plan.
