CS 356P-4 Specified Relative Cases, Medical Support
If the specified relative is receiving Medicaid-only for the child and there is an existing support order for that child, the Office of Recovery Services/Child Support Services (ORS/CSS) intake worker will open a case to enforce the medical support obligation and the child support obligation, unless the specified relative has declined child support services on the “Assignment of Rights.”
Medical support does not change in specified relative support-follows-the child situations. If there is an existing medical support provision in a support order, enforce the medical insurance obligation according to the Medical Support policies.
If there is no medical support provision in a support order, obtain an order that includes a medical support provision against the parent(s) if the case meets the Review and Adjustment, Medical Support Only criteria. If the parent(s) will not stipulate to a judicial order that includes the medical support provision, refer the case to the Attorney General's office for further action.
