How does DCS ask to add a monthly financial obligation to an existing administrative order for medical support only?
(1) The division of child support (DCS) may ask to add a monthly financial support obligation to an administrative child support order for medical support only, if:
(a) The custodial parent who previously requested medical support only services, files an application for full support enforcement services; or
(b) A child covered by the order receives public assistance.
(2) The procedure required to add the monthly financial support obligation depends on whether DCS served a notice and finding of medical responsibility (NFMR), medical support only notice and finding of financial responsibility (NFFR) or medical support only notice and finding of parental responsibility (NFPR) to establish the administrative support order:
(a) If the medical support obligation was established through service of a NFMR, DCS serves a NFFR under WAC 388-14A-3115
or a NFPR under WAC 388-14A-3120
which requests a monthly financial obligation.
(b) If the medical support obligation was established through service of a NFFR or a NFPR, DCS files a petition to modify the previous administrative order under WAC 388-14A-3925
