However, if the other Plan does not have the rule described in a. above, but instead has arule based upon the gender of the parent, and if, as a result, the Plans do not agree on theorder of benefits, the rule in the other Plan will determine the order of benefits. (4) Dependent Child/Separated or Divorced Parents. If two or more Plans cover a person as a Dependent child of divorced or separated parents, benefits for the child aredetermined in this order: first, the Plan of the parent with custody of the child; then, the Plan of the spouse of the parent with the custody of the child; and finally, the Plan of the parent not having custody of the child.
However, if the specific terms of a court decree state that one of the parents is responsible for the health care of the child, and the entity obligated to pay or provide the benefits of the Plan of that parent has actual knowledge of these terms, the benefits of that (5) Longer/Shorter Length of Coverage.
