I'm not a Florida lawyer, and without getting more information, I can't give you specific advice.  For that, you need to see an attorney in your area, and one place to locate one is our website, http://attorneypages.com

The first thing I'd want to know is the reason being given for this.  It may be that there is something in the health insurance plan, that comes from the insurance company, that is creating this problem.  Benefits like health insurance are covered by a federal statute, ERISA, and there are very technical requirements that have to be followed -- otherwise, the employer's part of the cost isn't tax-deductible!

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
