A paperwork or adminstrative error does not entitle you to get something (such as insurance coverage) for free, or to escape your obligation to pay for something. If you received the coverage you have to pay for it. Your best is to try to negotiate a payment plan or schedule you can afford. If you can't work it out with them, they may not withhold money from your pay without your permission or consent--but they could sue you for the money and also fire you.
