- Extraordinary medical expenses are beyond the typical amount spent.
- No state includes them as part of the basic child support amount.
- For those states that have defined extraordinary medical expenses (list), there are three approaches:
1. Unreimbursed medical expenses that exceed a specific amount per child per year
2. Uninsured expenses in excess of $100 for a single illness or condition
3. Uninsured expenses that exceed a certain percentage of basic child support obligation.
- Other states like Georgia have not specifically defined extraordinary medical expenses. It is mentioned in O.C.G.A. § 19-6-15(i)(J)(iii) and can be requested as a deviation.
