- Wedding: April 2013
Not sure if this goes here or not but I’m just SO angry!
A background story… I’ve been at my job since August of 2010. At my job you have to be a full time employee for 6 months to qualify for health insurance. So I work there until April of 2011, a full 8 months and didn’t get insurance. Anyways, I got transferred out of state and started working in the new state. I was there for three months but ended up transferring back to my old job and moving back (long story I wont get into).
I get back and start work right away. My first day back was July 4th 2011. I worked there for 5 months before a management company came in and took over. They came in December and said if you were not insured before you would have to wait 6 months from the time the management took effect on January first to qualify for insurance. During this time I was having serious medical issues and hospital bills.
I worked with the new management company 5 months and on May the second my medical issues got worse and I was in and out of the hospital and my hours got short and I was two hours shy of full time. Again I did not qualify for insurance. Now keep in mind they only allow sign up for insurance in January and in June. I obviously because of this did not make the cut for getting insurance in June.
So finally I have a chance to get insurance starting January first. My boss was slow at filling out the paper work and didn’t have it in until late December. But I got my insurance card and they started taking out 1/3 of my pay for insurance. So I’m happy. I have insurance right? Wrong.
I call the insurance company today to get a list of local doctors (and I need to see them, due to my medical issues last year they suspended my license and I need it back but only doctors can give it back) and the insurance company says “I’m sorry but we don’t have you as an active member, you are not covered by our insurance”
I am fuming! I am so angry! I’ve been trying to get insurance for two years and I keep getting screwed over! I’m ready to cancel the insurance and quit my job that is already terrible and find another place that wont do this! I’m so frustrated!
Sorry for the vent but I’m so angry right now!!!!! I don’t know what to do. I talked to my boss and she said she will email the HR department but going by how long it took to put the papers in (and I’d been asking her since October but she didn’t do it until late December) I’m sure she will forget and I will have to tell her 15 times before she even sends the email. I already owe around $10,000 to the local hospital for what happened when I should have had insurance. I’m so angry and I just don’t know what to do!
