Qualified Medical Child Support Orders

A Qualified Medical Child Support Order is a decree issued by a court requiring healthcare coverage for a child. The Fund will honor medical child support orders if they're Qualified Medical Child Support Orders (QMCSOs).

If a QMCSO issued in a divorce or legal separation proceeding requires you to provide medical coverage to a child who is not in your custody, you may do so. To be considered qualified, a Medical Child Support Order must include all of the following information:

  • Name and last known address of the parent who is covered under the Fund;
  • Name and last known address of each child to be covered under the Fund;
  • Type of coverage to be provided to each child; and
  • Period of time for which the coverage is to be provided.

Medical child support orders should be sent to the Administrative Office so that the Fund can determine whether the order qualifies as a QMCSO. Upon receipt of the order, the Fund will provide you with a description of its procedures for determining whether the order is qualified. If the order is qualified, you may cover your children under the Plans. If you would like to obtain a copy of the Fund's procedures governing QMCSOs, you may request a copy in writing, at no charge, from the Administrative Office.
