§48-5-606. Relief regarding costs of health care and
As an incident to requiring the payment of spousal support or
child support, the court may order either party to provide medical
support to the other party. Payments made to an insurer pursuant
to this subdivision, either directly or by a deduction from wages,
shall be deemed to be spousal support or installment payments for
the distribution of marital property, in such proportion as the
court shall direct: Provided,
That if the court does not set forth
in the order that a portion of the payments is to be deemed
installment payments for the distribution of marital property, then
all payments made pursuant to this section are spousal support.
The designation of insurance coverage as spousal support under the
provisions of this subdivision shall not, in and of itself, give
rise to a subsequent modification of the order to provide for
spousal support other than insurance for covering the costs of
health care and hospitalization.
