Calculate Percentage of Net Earnings for Court Orders
National Medical Support Notices limit the requirement to offer coverage based on an employee’s net and/or gross earnings. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare offers a Reasonable Cost Calculator to assist companies in calculating the employee's net and/or gross earnings, and thus assess the affordability of the required coverage.
The Reasonable Cost Calculator from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare can be found online here.
If your calculations exceed the limit for the order, do not proceed with the dependent's application. Reach out to the Issuing Agency for next steps.
In the event that the court order does not list the percentage of earnings, the administrator may need to call the issuing agency to confirm.
