(ii) Private coverage, unrelated to the noncustodial parent's employment.

(c) The department shall promptly notify the employer when there is no longer a current order for medical support in effect for which the department is responsible.
(d) The custodial parent, in consultation with the department, shall promptly select from available insurance plan options when the insurance plan administrator reports that there is more than one (1) option available under the plan, and shall take into consideration the income withholding of, and costs to, the obligor.
