Impact on Child Support:
More children with healthcare coverage
Increase in new medical support orders
Private health insurance will be available through increased employer offerings or individual policies through health insurance exchanges
The majority of parents will no longer be able to report "lack of access to insurance" as a reason to avoid a medical support order
A shift toward increased number of custodial parents being ordered to provide coverage
Increased need for medical support order review and modification
Ordered parents will be more likely to comply MSO's because of the increased availability of private insurance coverage options.

If everyone is required to have health insurance under the ACA, how can there be a medical support order?
Wouldn't the custodial parent be responsible for obtaining health insurance and wouldn't that policy cover the children?
