Medical Bill Cap

There is no automatic cap on child medical reimbursements. If your obligation is pursuant to court order, then you could ask the court to modify the order based on these concerns.

My son is autistic and receives Medicaid. I am still responsible for 80% of medical bills.

Is there a cap on how much I have to pay? She is increasing all Dr visits outside of what Medicaid will pay as she puts it “because she can knowing I have to pay 80%”.

I want my son to be treated but at the same time not when my entire pay check is being taken for child support and medical bills which medicaid and my insurance won’t cover.
