Maybe. What does their agreement with the Insurance Company say? Employment manual? Are other dependents covered for other employees? Open Enrollment? Qualifying Event? For more info see www.SteveShorr.com

Not in the United States or Canada, unless the employer also refuses insurance coverage to opposite-sex spouses.

Yes, you are allowed to refuse to be covered by the employer's plan. They may ask you for proof of coverage elsewhere, which you may or may not have. The insurance carrier wants this, in order to know that people are not dropping out for other reasons. Even if you do not have coverage elsewhere, you can still refuse to join the employer's plan.

Most insurance companies will refuse to renew if you have had significant losses or traffic violations.

Your employer can refuse if they have good reason. I'm not certain what kind of reason that could be, but if they are providing insurance to everyone else except you, you might have a discrimination case on your hands.

The insurance companies have certain rules and restrictions. They have the right to refuse policies and coverage to people on certain medication including sleeping pills.

They can refuse to cover her if she has coverage available where she works but I think they have to cover you. At least that is the way it is where I work. I also have the option of covering her on anything she isn't offered where she works, such as vision or dental programs.

It is not against the law for an employer to refuse health insurance to their employees. Many companies and major corporations do offer health insurance through health benefits administrators, which are part of the HR department of the company you work for. You might want to get more information about this for your company or from the health benefits administrator of your company.

An employer can't refuse to pay you a bonus you have already earned. They can refuse to pay you a bonus if you haven't earned it.

Conditionally renewable policy grants the insurer a limited right to refuse to renew a health insurance coverage at the end of a premium payment period.

You can but it is unwise because you need to know when you would be covered by the spouse's health plan. Some plans have 3 and 6 monthj waiting periods. So it is wise to keep your insurance, sign up on the spouse's insurance then later on after you have your new coverage in effect you could drop your employer's plan. Some employers however "require" their employees to be covered or are paying for the coverage. Check with your employer about that. Some employers will also refuse to cover you again if you lose your husband's coverage. If the marriage is not is good shape it is a foolish to drop your own coverage in case there is a divorce. Sorry to mention it but is true.

Only if your employer happens to be a branch of the US military.

Yes, I was refused by several private insurance companies. Unicare, United Healthcare and others. However, if you are able to work, group policies will include you for coverage.

Your health insurance will cover you no matter how you got hurt. I can take a knife and stick it in my arm and go to the hospital and my health insurance will cover me. The only times your health insurance will not cover you is if you have specific exemptions in your coverage, which are rare.

YES! But be warned it depends on what type of coverage you have. Some insurance companies will call that an "act of god" and refuse the claim even if you have full coverage, so you have to READ THE FINE PRINT.

Almost any car insurance company may sometimes allow people to purchase insurance without a deposit. However, they may also refuse if the information provided is not acceptably risk-free enough.

The employer does not need the employee to APPROVE or even acknowledge the discipline for the employer to unilaterally impose it. Refuse to sign and you are still disciplined.

Yes they can refuse if you are not married or not a relative.

The smart thing to do would be to amend your disclosures, as lying on the form can cause your insurance company to drop your coverage and/or refuse to pay for medical procedures. Or--just try not to get sick.
