Payments for Medical Bills

 Home / Court Departments / Domestic Relations / Payments for Medical Bills

The custodial parent is responsible for the first $250.00 of unreimbursed medical expenses per calendar year per child. Once this is satisfied, the custodial parent should send copies of medical bills to the non-custodial parent by certified mail within thirty days of receipt. The non-custodial parent must make payment within thirty days of receiving the bills. If the non-custodial parent fails to pay the medical bills, the custodial parent may submit a Summary of Medical and/or Dental Bills to the Domestic Relations Section for a Contempt conference to be scheduled.

We will not accept just a statement with a balance. It must be accompanied by a copy of the original bill(s) and a copy of the receipt(s). Documentation of medical expenses must be provided to the other party no later than March 31st of the following calendar year.
