Insurance Enforcement is an automated activity in the MiCSES computer system. If the court order indicates both parties will carry medical insurance for the benefit of the minor child, the MiCSES computer system will begin enforcement. Anytime a possible new employer is identified insurance enforcement is automatically started. Employers are sent a National Medical Support Notice instructing the employer to add medical insurance for any child associated with the child support case. This enforcement happens to both parties on the case as long as they are ordered to provide medical insurance.
For custodial parents reasonable heath care premium is defined as 5% of net earnings. For non-custodial parents reasonable heath care premium is defined as 5% of net earnings not to exceed 65% of net earnings including child support.
All insurance changes need to be reported to the Friend of the Court with the following information:
- Name and address of insurance company
- Group number
- Date effective insurance coverage started
- Copy of front and back of insurance card
If insurance is provided by a third party not associated with the case, the following information is needed in addition to the above information:
- Social Security Number
- Date of birth of the person carrying the insurance.
