Baton Rouge, LA asked in Family Law for Louisiana

Q: Louisiana court ordered a father to provide medical coverage plus 86% of OOP cost does this mean vision & dental also?

Our court papers say nothing about Vision or dental coverage. The court ordered that the father provides medical coverage and for him to pay 86% of the out of pocket cost for medical and prescription. If not Specified for the father to provide dental and vision insurance does he still have to pay 86% of all dental and vision related appointments and braces, glasses, etc.?
