If I am hired with medical benefits, is my employer allowed to stop this benefit?
Yes. An employer may stop medical benefits however, the employer is needed to give notice if the medical benefits are being stopped or the medical benefits are changing.
If the medical benefits are being discontinued, the employer must provide 30 days advance notice in writing. If the medical benefit plan is changing the employer must tell the employees in writing immediately once the employer is notified by the health insurer.
