The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
767.23 (1n) (b) 3. of the statutes is created to read:
767.23 (1n) (b) 3. If the court or circuit court commissioner requires one party to cover the child under a health insurance policy or plan under sub. (1) (k), the court or circuit court commissioner shall order the party to provide to the other party a health insurance identification card for the child. Section 767.25 (4m) (bm) 2. and 3. applies to a failure to comply with a temporary order under this subdivision.
767.25 (4m) (bm) of the statutes is created to read:
767.25 (4m) (bm) 1. The court shall order a parent who is required to provide health insurance coverage for a child under this subsection to provide to the other parent a health insurance identification card evidencing the child's health insurance coverage.
2. If the parent ordered to provide a health insurance identification card for the child fails to do so, the other parent may attempt to obtain a card for the child by presenting to the health insurance provider or to the employer through which the insurance is provided a copy of the order requiring the provision of a card.
3. If the other parent is unable to obtain a health insurance identification card for the child in the manner provided in subd. 2., the intentional failure to comply with the order to provide the card by the parent so ordered constitutes a contempt of court, punishable under ch. 785.
