No, it cannot. If it does the company could be reported and be held personally liable for the medical expenses and ensuring policy reinstated.

My concern is that I'm also employed by this company and the only one working. My husband has been employed by them for 28 years, full time, management up until he got sick in June and had a triple bypass done. There were complications and he still is not back at work. They said because his FLMA ran out that his insurance did too.
Employment Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 10 months ago

when insurance is being cancelled there has to be notice and it cannot be done in a discriminatory manner. It can be raised with HR by counsel or employee directly.
