The FSD or local child support agency will also ask the court to require the noncustodial parent to provide health insurance coverage, including vision and dental care, for the child(ren). The court will order the noncustodial parent to maintain health coverage for the child(ren), if it is available at reasonable cost. In most cases, the cost is considered reasonable if the coverage is employmentrelated group health insurance or other group health insurance. If coverage is not available at a reasonable cost, the court`s order for support will state that the parent must obtain health insurance coverage if it becomes available at a reasonable cost.
