I am normally a Lurker but am looking for HR advice. My son was born in July I reported his birth but I got overwhelmed as a first time mom I guess and completely forgot to send a copy of birth certificate. I got a letter reminding me to send it in. I tried unsuccessfully to fax it but the line was consistently busy and I ended up mailing it to our HR office 1 week before the deadline. I was just told it was not received until 2 days after the deadline and his health care would be canceled. I am appealing the decision but if I lose do you think he could get insurance through my husband's job? I am not sure under what circumstances I can add coverage.
