The court order that X and I have in place indicates that uncovered medical expenses will be shared equally and that once they have been presented to the party who should reimburse that they have 30 days to pay.
X owes me money. (shocker, right?) As the kids are covered by X’s health insurance. X receives a mailed statement from the insurance company each and every time a medical billing event takes place, e.g. doctor visit, prescription, etc. Should not X be reimbursing me within 30 days of being presented with those statements? They are systematically mailed to X’s address and indicate the monies paid, the child, the provider, and what the insurance paid etc. X has been in receipt of many of these statements and has yet to pay, but seems to rather want to rely on me to specifically ask for the reimbursement which IMHO is just extra hoops to jump through and changes nothing. In some cases I don’t have the actual receipts available but that does not mean she has not been presented with a statement showing all the details laid out above each and every time. Clearly, X does not want to pay the half owed to me and is looking for a way to either stall or not pay at all on a technicality. I suppose it would be a flimsy argument to make that X didn’t know that the pharmacy statements and dr visit statements that X was getting were not for services/expenses that X had not participated in or scheduled etc. Its mostly prescriptions.
What to do?
Do I go to go to CSE or because this is medical bills and a court order is in place do I have to file a Contempt of Court. If I file a CoC about this where do I get the form(s)?
As always, Thanks and Thank you
