Roy sent me over here with this question....

[[My husband changed jobs this past July, and we have just discovered that his
employer did NOT enter him in the cafeteria plan for his health insurance. The
accountant says that is because as they understood it, if you arrived in the middle
of the year, you couldn't be added to cafeteria plan until the beginning of the next
fiscal or calendar year.
I have gone to the IRS website, and I have researched the employer handbook-
publications 15 & 15a- as well as Publication 535, Chpt 5, and I see
NOTHING that says anything similar to the above statement.]]
My question is, is this something they decide at the office, or something that's an IRS guideline? I'll be losing money this year.
