Child support; health care coverage. Requires courts and the Department of Social Services, when making determinations regarding health care coverage for a dependent child who is the subject of a child support order, to (i) determine whether the child meets the eligibility requirements for the state program of medical assistance, Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) plan, or other government-sponsored health care coverage if it appears that the child may qualify for such coverage options and (ii) if the child qualifies for such coverage, determine whether such coverage is equivalent to any other coverage option that is available at a reasonable cost, taking into consideration deductible and copayment requirements.
