Under the laws of all states in this country, if the employer employee handbook of the business that you work for allows health insurance for the employees, then all employees are entitled to such benefits assuming the employees meet the qualifications for such.

However, if health insurance is provided to certain employees by the employer and not others as some "bonus" based upon production at the employer's cost, then such is allowable. I suggest that you consult with an attorney who practices in the area of employment law to further go into the facts of your question to get a clearer opinion concerning your question.
