23-3118.Same; failure to maintain coverage. (a) Except for good cause shown, the obligee shall be granted judgment against the obligor if: (1) The obligor was subject to a medical support order for a child; (2) under the Kansas child support guidelines the obligor received credit toward a cash child support obligation based upon health benefit premiums to be paid by the obligor; and (3) the anticipated premiums were not paid in full by the obligor because of the obligor's delay or failure in obtaining health benefit coverage for the child or the obligor's failure to maintain health benefit coverage for the child.

(b) The amount of the judgment shall include the lesser of: (1) Actual costs incurred by the obligee for substantially similar health benefits; or (2) the difference between the actual amount of the cash child support order and the amount the cash child support order would have been without the credit for unpaid premiums and with any premiums paid by the obligee for substantially similar health benefit coverage.

(c) Failure to obtain or maintain health benefit coverage as ordered, for whatever reason, shall be a material change of circumstances justifying modification of the order for support if credit has been given for health benefit premiums which were not paid timely.
