Title 19, Chapter 11, Section 27 (19-11-27)

(a) Whenever a support obligor who is required to maintain accident and sickness insurance fails to provide such coverage as ordered, or allows such coverage to lapse, the department, the Department of Community Health, or the other party may compel the obligor to obtain insurance coverage as provided in this Code section. The remedies provided in this Code section shall be in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to the department, the Department of Community Health, or the other party.

(b) Upon failure of a support obligor to obtain accident and sickness insurance coverage as ordered, or upon the lapse of coverage required to be provided, the department, the Department of Community Health, or the other party may send a notice of enrollment by certified mail or statutory overnight delivery, return receipt requested, to the person or entity providing access to such coverage on behalf of the obligor. The notice shall include a certified copy of the latest order requiring health insurance coverage and the return address of the sender. Upon receipt of a notice of enrollment, any person or entity providing access to accident or sickness insurance coverage on behalf of the obligor shall immediately undertake to provide such coverage as specified in the notice of enrollment. Any person or entity providing access to accident or sickness insurance coverage on behalf of the obligor shall be deemed authorized to execute any document for the obligor in order to establish coverage. If more than one insurance plan is available, coverage shall be established under the obligor's existing plan or a previously existing plan where possible. If coverage under the obligor's existing plan or a previously existing plan cannot be established, the person or entity providing access to accident and sickness insurance coverage on behalf of the obligor shall establish coverage under the least expensive plan otherwise available.

(c) Any person or entity providing access to accident and sickness insurance coverage on behalf of the obligor pursuant to a notice of enrollment shall withhold from the obligor's income the amount necessary to pay the premium for the insurance coverage, provided that the amount deducted does not exceed the limitations of Section 303(b) of the federal Consumer Credit Protection Act, as amended.

(d) Upon receipt of a notice of enrollment, the person or entity providing access to accident and sickness insurance coverage on behalf of the obligor shall notify the person or entity sending the notice of enrollment within 30 business days whether:

(1) Enrollment in an accident and sickness insurance plan has occurred; or

(2) Enrollment cannot be established, stating the reasons why coverage is not available.
