    Default Re: Consequences Of Failing To Provide Medical Care Coverage

    One common consequence is that the child gets ill or is injured, medical bills result, and the parent who has violated the court's order is required to pay all amounts that should have been covered by the insurance they failed to provide. He could also be found in contempt of court. You say he's in the military, so his C.O. probably won't be too happy with him if he's found to be intentionally violating a court order.

    You say that this is free coverage, so why are you even asking this question?

    No, obeying a court's order to provide medical coverage does not result in a reduction of your child support obligations.
