I just noticed that I have been changed $40+/month for dental plan that I DON'T EVEN WANT and my fucking HR dept refuses to cancel becuase I haven't had a "life event" in the past 30 days
I swear to fuck, I cancelled it during open enrollment. I haven't used the coverage in over 2 years because it is craptastic and DH's policy covers me.
Who the fuck thinks it's OK to NOT LET ME CANCEL COVERAGE I DO NOT WANT?
I can understand not being able to willy-nilly ADD coverage, but srsly? FORCING me to pay for coverage that I DIDN'T WANT IN THE FIRST PLACE?
I am (obviously
) apoplectic over this
I'm not even interested in getting my $$ back for the 4 months I've paid for so far. I just want to stop paying for coverage I do.not.need.or.want. and that I SWEAR I cancelled during open enrollment.
And no, of course I didn't fucking print the crap off when I went thru open enrollment - why would I? I would NEVER have occurred to me to do that, because I was CANCELLING shit.
Why on earth is this policy? What is the benefit to the employee here?
And the only reason I found out was because HR fucked up my paycheck last pay period and fixed it afterwards, and I was just double-checking my paystub on-line when I noticed a deduction for dental coverage. So, naturally, I'm outside the "30 day Life Event" notification period. Well, I didn't have a fucking LIFE EVENT, damnit. The fucking on-line open enrollment fucked up and I didn't notice it and I should fucking be able to CANCEL if I WANT TO
