Child spends a week with paternal GPs. Child gets hit with a ball at a batting cage. GM speaks with both BD and BM about it and they all determine that he just has a bruise and doesn't need to see the doctor.
Dad picks child up from GPs and sees the injury and again, feels that it is just bruised and doesn't need medical care. BD returns child to BM. Instead of going to urgent care at the regular pedi's office, she takes child to the ER where he incurs a $1,000 bill for x-rays, etc that show that the child has ... a bruise.
BD carries the insurance, other medical expenses are shared 50/50.
Does BD still pay $500 for an ER visit that he thought was unnecessary?
