Who is Pays First?

Question: Who is primary when there is adult dependent on both parents policy and parents are divorced?

Answer: Coordination of Benefit Rules were codified by the National Association of Insurance Commissioner in 1986 and each state uses this model with some modifications. The rules cover how the primary payer is determined when an insured employee or dependent has double coverage. To determine who pays first on dependent children’s claims, the plan covering the parent whose birthday is earlier in the calendar year is primary.
