My adopted daughter receives her health insurance via Medicaid that the state of NC provides as part of the adoption. (My ex wife adopted her and then I married in and I adopted her)
She also receives a monthly support payment from the state also as part of the adoption, it’s near $600.
My ex and I share joint legal custody but my wife has primary physical placement of my daughter. My wife also refuses to let me see my daughter (as a side note). I am not informed about any health decisions as our agreement states I should be.
Our separation agreement states that “All future medical, dental, pharmaceutical, optical and other HEALTH RELATED EXPENCES of the child shall be divided equally.” (Exact wording as it is on document)
My question is, are cosmetic items such as medical unnecessary braces, and contact lenses a part of this?
Medicaid refuses to pay for these items as they deem them unnecessary, so do I have to cover them?
Also, are over the counter medications a requirement to pay.
I pay child support monthly as part of our agreement, and I have asked my Ex to let me visit my daughter, she refuses, do I have recourse?
