Pissing me off What's wrong, flat face? TTC since Jul 2012; 1 child; 3 angel babies; Texas 13678 posts

My husbands job is anyways. They told him when he got hired on that after his 90 day period he would have insurance well now they are telling us it is going to be another month before he gets insurance and he won't argue it at all because he is not argumentative like myself. This is complete bull shit. And it is going to take them three weeks to process his paper work for being permanent because their HR department is slow.. Like really?! We expected to have all of this done at the begging of this month which is bad because now we are short on rent because we were depending on this raise for that extra $100. Just seriously pissing me off atm.

Do you realize how much insurance will be? It'll more than likely be a lot more than $100, so if that makes you short on rent you need to look at some other options. That is really annoying that you have to wait because "HR is slow". I hate that excuse.

Nope. He will be making about $400 extra a month than he is now with his raise.



Edit: I see now that I probably worded that wrong in my OP.

My husband was entitled to insurance over a year ago and we still don't have any. His job keeps screwing him over. Giving him the wrong numbers to call. Giving him prices for executives instead of the lowly workers. It has been a constant battle. I doubt it we ever get it

Oh good!! Our insurance is about $480 a month to cover our whole family.

It will be covering three of us and his friend says it costs him his wife and his two kids about $200 a month so I am hoping it is a price like that for us as well.

i think what they meant was he would be eligible for insurance after 90 days. insurance companies usually have an annual enrollment period. my husband dealt with the same thing. he got hired on in may after working through a temp agency and was immediately eligible for benefits (ins, holiday pay, raise ect) but the insurance enrollment period was not until november. once november came around we filed the ins papers with HR and was covered. it costs us $42 per week for my husband, myself and our one year old. it sucks though, because they only offer one plan and its a $5000 deductible, meaning we are responsible for all costs until we reach $5000...then they will start helping out. it does have a good prescription plan though.

Us too. We pay well over $500 for DH, DS and myself. That stuff is expensive but we have really good insurance.



It has always taken forever when DH switches jobs to get everything straightened out. HR is always slow!

This insurance is supposed to be a really good one and offer all kinds of different options. It will be better than Walmart insurance because there I was paying $150 a month for myself and my child and it was still a $7500 deductible and a $10000 max out of pocket. (after I reach the deductible they pay 80% and I pay the rest until I reach the 10k) The only reason I had it was because of the preventative care being free.

Both of our jobs we could get our insurance as soon as the 90 days were up, wether it was open enrollment or not. You can also change insurance whenever for a birth/death/job change, etc.
