Yes they can. Maternity leave is designed to allow you the time needed to have the child and then return to work. If we decide to quit the job then we don't get to keep the benefit. This could be viewed as gaming the system.

In general, if the insurance was in force at the time of the pregnancy, the coverage will apply according to its terms. If the employee qualifies for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) benefits, and decides not to return to work, the employee and the employee are generally allowed to agree to terms by which the employee can reimburse the employee for the cost of insurance that remains in force during the FMLA coverage period.

There are no state or federal laws that require your employer to offer health insurance. They can decide to offer plans to full time employees only. They can decide to offer to salaried employees only.

HMO medical insurance is insurance that is through the employer. It means they will only pay for certain things, and certain doctors as well. You can get a list, and doctors decide what qualifies.

Every New Jersey resident has the right to health insurance. Students must decide if they will apply privately, through the government, or through an employer.

If your employer was good enough to advance your small portion of the premium that you pay for your health insurance then I would think that you would be gracious enough to repay this amount to them willingly. If they wish to push it you really would not only owe them the portion of the premium that you pay but the entire premium amount that was paid since you really were not an employee since the day you left. If your intent is to screw over the company who gave you employment these years and paid for your medical expenses when your child was born, read state law or see a lawyer.
