Court Ordered Coverage for Child

By on | No Comments

Question: What do I do about this? The court says I have to get insurance for my son in Houston Texas but I live in Wisconsin. I tried to do a application on teh computer but its asking for all kinds of infomation I dont have about him. I didnt even know I had a son until last week.

Answer: This can be challenging but it's doable. In the first instance I would recommend using a paper application rather than completing one online. Let me know if you need help with this part. You will then need to contact the primary care giver for your son in Texas. You'll need to go through the application with them over the phone. They will also need to sign and date the application seeing as they are the child's guardian. You may want to wait until you receive the signed form back before you complete the payor information and submit it for consideration by the insurance company.
