I have no idea where to turn. I have done google searches over and over and no one else seems to have this issue.
My employer is telling me I must buy their group coverage health insurance or I will lose my job.
My employer offers a cafeteria benefit of $360 a month. I have been using those funds to purchase my own health insurance at $201.51 a month. I receive no subsidy. Now they are telling me they will be penalized if I don’t sign up for their insurance. My cost will now be $371 a month. This is $169.49 a month more for me. I cannot afford this $2033.88 more a year for health insurance.
If someone is married and covered under their husband’s insurance, they get the $360 as wages. Why am I being punished for not being married? Why do I have to buy insurance under a group plan? All the HR person could tell me was that it is in the ACA. The ACA says I have to have insurance under a GROUP PLAN. I can’t find this, where does it say this? Why can’t I buy my own insurance?
