AN ACT TO AMEND THE LAWS PERTAINING TO THE MEDICAL SUPPORT AND HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE RELATING TO CHILD SUPPORT TO ALIGN STATE LAW WITH FEDERAL GUIDELINES THAT NO LONGER INCLUDE THE PROVISION THAT EMPLOYER-PROVIDED GROUP HEALTH INSURANCE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONSIDERED "REASONABLE" AND TO MODIFY THE LONG-TERM CARE OMBUDSMAN PROGRAM TO CONFORM WITH FEDERAL GUIDELINES.
Amends GS 50-13.11(a1) concerning orders and agreements regarding medical support and health insurance coverage for minor children, making a clarifying change and adding language establishing that health insurance for the benefit of a child is considered reasonably if, in addition to being employment related or some other type of group health insurance, coverage of the child is available to the parent at a cost that does not exceed 7% of the parent's gross income (previously, only provided that such insurance was considered reasonable if it was employment related or other group health insurance).
Effective when the bill becomes law, applying to orders issued or agreements entered into on or after that date.
