Can your employer cancel your health insurance when you are on short term or long term disability because you did not make a payment on your insurance like is normally done through your paycheck?
Your employer's obligation to pay premiums normally stops when your paycheck does, that is, when your medical and personal leave is exhausted, and there is nothing left to ded…uct the premiums with. When that happens, the insurance company, not your employer, cancels your health insurance for lack of premiums. There are many ways to avoid this tragedy, including donation of leave by co-workers, if permitted, to keep the paychecks coming, or employer paying premiums for you until you are able to return to work. Good luck. JJ (MORE)
