Double Coverage Quandry

By on | No Comments

Question: My employer offers health insurance to me at no cost to me. My husband also has me covered through his insurance at his place of employment. I have been told that my insurance through my employer has to be my primary. I want to opt out of my insurance through my employer and only have my husband insurance, but my employer is telling me that I can not opt out and that I have to take the insurance. Is this right? The board pays our insurance, but I would rather them put my board paid money into and annuity.

Answer: The responsible thing to do would be to take the coverage your employer is offering and cancel the coverage being offered through your husband’s employer. Your sense of entitlement is especially astonishing at a time when many people lack good health care and some can’t get it at all.
