So, I started my first nursing job a little over a month ago. Last week, I went online to signup for my health benefits and I see the option for Health Savings Account. The HSA sounded interesting but I wanted more information about them before I signed up. I checked my folder I was given in orientation to see how long I had to sign up for benefits. I came across in the folder that told me 90 days from start date, which would have given me a little more than 8 more weeks from that time to sign up for benefits and look more into the HSA. Well, I did my research on HSA's and went back online to enroll in benefits and I was blocked from doing so, saying that I was past my enrollment period for benefits and I would need to wait until the next enrollment period. I emailed HR , thinking it would be a quick and easy fix as there was an obvious mistake. Well, HR told me that we were told on the first day we had 30 days to signup for benefits. I said, well ok, that's been a few weeks ago, I must have forgotten that by the time I went to signup for benefits, I double checked what I was given during orientation and with what they provided me, it said I had 90 days. HR said sorry, we told you 30 days in orientation. So, you will have to wait until the next open enrollment period.
Is it me or is that riduclous that I would be given conflicting information and now I can't get benefits until January as opposed to October 1st?
Would I be going to far to bring my situation to the CNO?
