Medical (Health Care) Support in Support Orders



In a child support action questions often arise as to which parent is responsible for Medical Support for the child or children. 

Medical Support for children is covered in the Pennsylvania Child Support Handbook available from the PA Child Support Program of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.

A discussion of Medical Support begins on page 10 of the handbook which appears at page 12 of this online document:

Pennsylvania Child Support Handbook 

The handbook can be downloaded from this page.
