(5) (A)  A judgment or order shall include: (i) the name and address of the obligor; (ii) the name, address and federal employer identification number of the obligor's employer; and (iii) such other information as the IV-D agency requires to assist it in collecting support payments. With respect to an order for income withholding made payable to the IV-D agency, the issuing court shall provide to the IV-D agency: (i) a copy of the judgment or order for support and the order for income withholding; (ii) the address of the obligee; (iii) the date of birth of the child; and (iv) such other information as the IV-D agency requires to assist it in collecting support payments; provided, however, that such information need not be included in the order for income withholding.

(B)  Each such judgment or order shall also include a provision for health care coverage for the child in accordance with this section and may require the obligor to pay an amount toward the obligee’s cost of health care coverage or toward uninsured medical expenses on behalf of the child.

For the purposes of this section: (i) health care coverage shall be deemed reasonable in cost if the cost to the party ordered to provide health care coverage does not exceed 5 per cent of the gross income of the party; (ii) health care coverage shall be deemed accessible to the child if covered services are available within 15 miles of the child’s primary residence; (iii) health care coverage includes private health insurance available through employment, union affiliation or otherwise, and public health coverage administered by the Title XIX agency; and (iv) private health insurance shall be deemed not available at reasonable cost to an obligor or obligee whose gross income does not exceed 150 per cent of the federal poverty guidelines for the family size or who receives MassHealth on behalf of the obligor, the obligee or the child.

If the obligee is required to provide health care coverage, the IV-D agency may transmit such national medical support notice to the employer of the obligee and the provisions of this section with respect to the notice shall apply to such obligee and such employer. The notice may be transmitted to the employer by any method, including paper, facsimile, magnetic tape or other electronic means.

SECTION 11.  Said subsection (d) of said section 12 of said chapter 119A, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by striking out the last sentence and inserting in place thereof the following sentence:- The obligor or obligee may contest or seek a modification of an order for health care coverage on the grounds that the coverage: (i) is no longer available to the obligor at reasonable cost; (ii) is no longer accessible to the child; (iii) is no longer in the best interest of the child; or (iv) creates an undue hardship for the moving party; provided, however, that the moving party shall bear the burden of proving that the coverage: (i) is no longer available to the moving party at reasonable cost; (ii) is no longer accessible to the child; (iii) is no longer in the best interest of the child; or (iv) creates an undue hardship for the moving party; and provided further, that the provider of health care coverage shall maintain coverage for the child under the order pending a modification of the order.

The national medical support notice shall have the same effect as an enrollment application signed by the employee and shall operate to enroll the child in the health care plan. The employer shall comply with the requirements of the national medical support notice as set forth in the instructions incorporated into the notice. If health care coverage is provided by the obligor, the employer or the provider of health care coverage shall furnish the obligee with such information as may be necessary for the child to obtain benefits through the plan and shall permit the obligee or, with the approval of the obligee, the provider of medical services to submit claims for covered services without the approval of the obligor.
