WAC 388-14A-4115

Can my support order reduce my support obligation if I pay for health insurance?

(1) Some support orders reduce the noncustodial parent's transfer payment based on health insurance premiums paid by the noncustodial parent (NCP).
(2) An NCP is entitled to the reduction for premiums paid only if the NCP submits proof of the cost of coverage which is actually being provided at the time the support order is entered, so that the amounts can be included in the worksheet calculation.
(3) If health insurance coverage terminates or if the amount of the premium changes, this does not mean that the transfer payment is automatically increased or decreased. However, such a change may constitute the basis for a petition to modify the support order.
