    nope, she was totally wrong.

    you have to enroll your spouse w/in 30 of the marriage..

    you notify your employer, not your insurance carrier. you go to human resources to fill out appropriate paperwork b/c they have to change your contributions.

    if you do not go to your human resources department w/in 30 days, you have to wait until your next open enrollment.

    It is the law- They have to enroll you, if you are his spouse. You should call a local bcbsga and talk to them about the situation. if they dont get u put on it, u can sue.
