What does your judgment for divorce say? Seat of the pants answer would be yes.

I was responsible to pay for medical expenses only after she paid the initial $250 deductible and all claims have been submitted to inusrance carriers. I have also been in situations where I have contested certain expenses that were not directly medical expenses such as warranties & shipping fees (ie. eye glasses). You should be able to find this information in your support order. Your domestic relation office can provide you with specific information on what type of medical expenses are considered.

This may vary based on your insurance carrier and the state you live in, but my insurance company told me I was unable to add my son to my policy if he lived with the other parent. If fact, the other parent refused to add him to their policy, and I was still unable to add him to mine because he did not "live" in my home. Our only alternative was to find a company which would set him up on his own policy, which I've been told is generally not allowed. Hope this helps.

As the driver is a minor child, the Custodial Parent or other Custodial Entity is Financially Liable for the acts of the minor child. An auto accident may or may not be covered under the Custodians Auto insurance Policy depending on whether the child is covered or excluded from coverage on that Policy.

This refers to the case in which a patient is insured by more than one insurance plan. For example, a Medicare patient is generally covered for 80% of charges for a physician visit. In this case , he or she would usually be responsible for the remaining 20% of charges. However, if he or she has dual insurance coverage and is also covered by a supplemental plan. Medicare plus, this secondary plan would generally pay the amount not covered by the patient's primary insurance plan, Medicare.
