Anthony sent me a $20 payment towards his share of uncovered medical. I’m shocked, pleasantly surprised and thankful. Got it today.
March 16th 1998
This letter was postmarked 3/17/1998. He received it on 3/20/98.
Keith was not agreeable to the visitations she set. They live 1200 miles away and the visitation schedule was peanuts.
In this latest letter she wrote, “Summer vacation 4 weeks from July 11- August 8th, 1998. If there is a problem with this as you stated in your letter please take me to court and let a third party decide. (The kids) do not want to stay at home every day with Patricia and the babies while you are at work. They kids want to spend their visitation with you not sitting at home while you work. Winter- December 26 to January 2nd- if you persist with your non agreement, the only other alternative is not to go at all. Weekends and in state visitations I offered one week in June because the kids like to visit you in shorter intervals and that was their request. This expense is not an issue with me as it is with you.”
Keith took her at her word. He decided to take her to court and let a third party decide the visitation.
I spoke to Anthony’s employer on 2/27/98 to verify eligibility for Sarah and was informed that she is covered under his policy.
On 3/19/98, I called his Health Plan and his employer and was told that in fact, there is NO such coverage on our daughter, but only for himself, his wife and her son. Remember, Anthony was court ordered on 12/5/95 to carry insurance on her.
HIS insurance is PRIMARY, there is no out of pocket costs to him. His employer pays 100%.
I reminded him he needed to take care of this and his Dental plan immediately. I also reminded him that my husband carries insurance coverage on our daughter as extra protection.
I ALSO sent a copy of the letter I wrote Anthony, to the DA’s office, requesting they take the necessary steps to ENFORCE the Health Insurance coverage order.
Anthony and I came to an agreement for him to pay his share of uncovered medical expenses. He owes $224.39. I don’t care about the change.
He agreed to $20 a month, starting April 1, 1998 and continuing on the first of every month, with his last payment being on March 1, 1999 in the amount of $24.39.
I told him if he pays cash, I’d provide a receipt. I also thanked him for being in compliance with the court order.
