I recently took a new job and was offered health coverage. 2 months ago I filled out the insurance application, electing coverage for myself and my son in the spaces provided, then gave the form back to the employer for processing, and thereafter received insurance cards in the mail. However, out of the blue my employer came up to me yesterday, said he had received the insurance bill and that he does not cover my dependent. Can he do this legally and is he even permitted to reject the coverage under Obamacare? I'm reading on a gov't site that "The federal health care reform law requires individual or employer plans to provide coverage for children..up to age 26." See http://www.tdi.texas.gov/pubs/consumer/cb005.html. Could you please advise - I would really appreciate it.There seems to be a pretty clear pro-employer bias in these answers. Interesting how you say the employer's not required to provide the insurance because it's not 2014, this disregards the fact that 2014 is only 4 months away. Why should he reject the coverage now if he's only going to have to provide it in a few more months anyway? Also, he was the one who got my completed form for insurance - there was no secret I was applying for both my son and I. That, plus the fact I got my insurance cards in the mail shows justifiable reliance. I wish I could get the opinion of an attorney who actually represents employees' interests.
