If the divorced parent who provides health insurance changes to a plan where the out-of-pockets costs are much higher for the other parent than the original coverage, is there anything the parent who now has much higher out-of-pocket costs can do? The plan is not what is indicated on the QMCSO.

If you do not think that the current situation is consistent with the intent of the order, you can apply for a modification of the order. Your prospects depend on state law. Most of the time, the medical child support order is a matter of child support. If the appropriate support is no longer being provided, the court might order the noncustodial parent to do something else. However, the practical options may be limited.
