How is the primary policy for health insurance determined when a child is covered under both divorced parents' policies?

I would say use both insurance's because neither of them pay

100%. Use one insurance for primary and let the other insurance

pick up what the other one doesn't pay. Kind of like a supplemental

insurance. ==Answer == Absolutely use both. If you get to make the

determination then choose as primary the one with the greatest

benefit. Don't be surprised however if each wants to claim that the

other is primary. What it may come down to in that situation is the

one that was in place first will likely be considered primary.
