Child Support - Unreimbursed and Uninsured Medical Expenses
Many support orders state the percentage of uninsured and unreimbursed medical expenses that each party is responsible for paying.
Either party can ask the other party to pay these expenses.
Collection by the requesting party
The party requesting unreimbursed and uninsured medical expenses must complete and send the following documents for collecting the expenses from the responsible party:
The Unreimbursed and/or Uninsured Medical/Dental Expenses Packet (DHS-4931-ENG) (PDF) includes the documents as well as instructions for completing the Notice and Affidavit.
If it has been at least 30 days since you sent the Notice of Intent to Collect Unreimbursed and/or Uninsured Medical/Dental Expenses and the other party has not responded, you may either:

The child support agency will verify that correct procedures were followed by the requesting party then serve the Notice of Intent to Enforce Unreimbursed and/or Uninsured Medical/Dental Expenses to the responsible party.
If the expenses are added to the child support case for the amount owed by the custodial parent, twenty percent of the custodial parent's child support payment may be deducted to pay the noncustodial parent for the expenses.
