Am I responsible for my stepson's unpaid co pays and deductibles?

Q:  He is currently 21. He has never lived with us but since my husband was on my policy and legally responsible for medical insurance. We added my stepson about 10 years ago. I am the subscriber of the medical insurance.

A:  David's Answer:  No, because he's an adult anyway for child support purposes. But regardless, the co-pays are assessed by the provider, not technically by the insurance company. Thus, the bills for same should go to your step-son.   -- David Bliven, Westchester Child Support attorney (
