Saint Petersburg, FL asked in Divorce for Florida

Q: Do health care sharing networks count as health insurance for purposes of court-mandated coverage for minors in divorce?

Is there a standard mandate on this across Florida? For context, these networks are typically religious ministries and were specifically included in the ACA legislation to allow participants to be exempt from the ACA Mandate.
