    Default Medical responsibilities

    My current husband's ex wife recently sent him a letter trying to get him to pay half of his son's medical expenses which are not covered by insurance. The divorce paperwork does state that he is responsible for half of what insurance does not cover. Our question is, do the copays fall under that responsibility? She's claiming that we have to pay half of the copays but the way we read the paperwork, it's only what insurance does not cover and we didn't think copays are applicable in this situation.

    A copayment is an amount not covered by insurance.

    Default Medical responsibilities

    But copays are never billed to the insurance. Our responsibility is for amounts that are billed to the insurance and whatever is not covered then we pay half of what is remaining.

    Default Uninsured Medical Expenses

    Does your order really say that? Or does it hold you responsible for half of all uninsured expenses not covered by insurance (or "uninsured medical expenses), which obviously would include the copayment.
