Court Ordered Coverage Qualifies You for a Special Enrollment Period
Many times, often during divorce or separation proceedings, a parent is ordered by state or federal court to provide health insurance coverage for their child. A description of the coverage required will be included in the order. A Medical Child Support Order (MCSO) being issued is a qualifying life event that triggers a Special Enrollment Period.
This means you have the opportunity to find a new health insurance plan for you and your children. Keep in mind though that you must enroll in a qualified health plan within 60-days of the event.
Remember that you will likely be asked to provide documentation that triggers your Special Enrollment Period. In this case, that documentation would be the MCSO or other legal paperwork showing that you are legally obligated to enroll your child in a qualified health plan.
