BN - National Medical Support Notice & Badgercare

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

"National Medical Support Notice (NMSN) is a federal requirement that occurs when a court orders the parent in question to provide coverage for their minor child(ren)" (Wisconsin BadgerCare Plus). Coverage for new dependent(s) will be effective the first of the month on or after receipt of the health application if not specified on the NMSN. A benefit eligible employee is required to enroll in SGH coverage within 30 days of court order support notice.

Badgercare is a Children's Health Insurance Program, which provides coverage to children and families with incomes too high to qualify for Medicaid, but can't afford employer coverage. Coverage for dependents and families are effective as dated on the Badgercare form. Coverage remains in place until Badgercare notifies employee of change in benefits.

PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS:
  • The UW Service Center Benefits Team is considered the Employer and the Benefit Administrator for these processes.
  • The UWSC will involve the campus if applications are needed.
  • The UW is required to follow the NMSN until we receive modified court orders.  The employee is not legally allowed to remove the children. 



PROCEDURE STEPS:

  • Both National Medical Support Notice and Badgercare processes are handled internally by the UWSC Benefits team .
    • The only time an institution needs to be involved is if an application needs to be collected from the employee.
    • Benefit Administrators will receive a ticket from UWSC Benefits Team for this request.
  • If you receive requests/documentation for this please forward to the UWSC Benefits team for centralized processing.
