Accidentally Declined Employer Coverage, What do I Do?

I work for St. Paul’s Catholic School in the Diocese of St. Augustine, Florida. We receive health insurance benefits paid in full by the diocese.

Last May I went online to fill out the re-enrollment form. Apparently, I hit the “decline” button for insurance. This was certainly an accident on my part. I didn’t even know that I didn’t have coverage until I went to the dermatologist in September and the claim was denied.

The diocese was not willing/able to amend this error with BC/BS. They informed me that I would have to wait until the next fiscal year to re-enroll.

How am I to manage this? I do not have money budgeted for insurance. The school pays for my coverage, normally. I will re-enroll in May for starting date of July 1. Please advise me on this as soon as possible. I realize that the deadline is fast approaching.
