23-3117.Same; duties of payor with respect to withholding order. (a) For purposes of the income withholding act and amendments thereto, service of a medical withholding order on an employer shall constitute service of the medical withholding order on the sponsor or administrator of the employer's health benefit plan. It shall be the duty of the employer to provide to the sponsor or administrator of the health benefit plan any information in the medical withholding order needed by the sponsor or administrator to carry out duties pursuant to the income withholding act and amendments thereto.

(b) An employer, sponsor or other administrator of a health benefit plan shall not unreasonably delay a child's enrollment pursuant to a medical withholding order. If there is a defect in the form or documentation, the employer, sponsor or other administrator of a health benefit plan shall process the enrollment to the extent possible and promptly inform the requesting person of any additional documents or information needed to complete enrollment.

(c) If a medical withholding order has been served and the payor has determined that the child will not be enrolled immediately because the parent required to provide health coverage for the child is not eligible for family coverage, it shall be the duty of the payor to promptly reconsider the determination not to enroll the child if the parent subsequently becomes eligible for family coverage.

(d) The payor shall deduct and remit premiums or other payments required by the health benefit plan as provided in the plan.
