Husband paying for first wife's medical aid and not the second wife's

Q: If a man has 2 wives and has medical aid only for one of the wives and his argument is that he had it prior to me marrying him. What is the duty of the husband in the instance?

A: We totally disagree with the concept of medical aid. The law of equal distribution will require that the amount that he gives to the first wife for the medical aid must be given to the second wife.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
