My employer deducted money from my paycheck for health insurance . But my employer also contacted BlueCross BlueShield and cancelled my insurance. But the money was still being deducted from my paycheck. Now I owe my Dr over 6000 in bills. I was embarrassed when I went in for a follow up and couldn't be seen. Please help me
You need to contact an employment law attorney with experience in employee benefits. There may be a COBRA violation depending on whether your employer is covered, which could entitle you to damages. There are other possibilities as well, but you'll need to give more details before that determination can be made.
You need to get to the bottom of this fast. Is your employer just stealing from you? It certainly does not appear to be on the up and up. Is there a Human Resources dept where you work? If so, go speak with them and find out. You might want to sit down with a lawyer to go over all your paperwork to see what is going on.
