Employer Medical Premium Calculator – Is it Affordable?
In some child support cases, a court-order may be created to add a child or children to a parent’s medical insurance coverage. In those cases, the employer will receive a National Medical Support Notice. This notice alerts the employer that the employee identified is obligated to provide health care coverage through his or her employer. However, in some cases enrollment cannot be completed because the amount withheld from the employee’s paycheck would exceed the limitations on withholding and is not considered a “reasonable cost” under state and federal law. More information can be found on the “Limitations on Withholding” section of the National Medical Support Notice.
To determine if the premium amount is a “reasonable cost”, click the calculator below. Depending on the numbers entered, the blue box of the excel sheet will read “yes” or “no”. A “yes” indicates the cost is reasonable, and the employee should be enrolled. A “no” indicates the cost is not reasonable, and the employer should notify Fairfield County Job and Family Services.
