Medical support is a form of child support that is often provided through an employer’s health insurance plan. Child support agencies will send a National Medical Support Notice (NMSN) to the employer to order coverage for an employee’s child(ren). The NMSN may accompany an income withholding order or it may be sent separately.
Employers must honor this notice that may accompany an income withholding order to enroll children in health care coverage.
