Needed home time to take care of sinus issues and DOT Physical Compliance Issues

First day of home time and I'm in surgery to open my sinuses up so I can breathe through my nose. Day five I go in for post op to get packing taken out of my nose. I've been trying to get set up for a sleep study and I'm told my company deactivated my insurance. I call my company HR to be told that is was deactivated on the first day of my home time while I was in surgery for my sinuses because they termed me out of the system. She transferred me over to my Driver Manager who reinstates my employment back as if they had never termed me out but my insurance is still inactive. I'm supposed to have a sleep study tonight and I'm told my insurance has not be reactivated yet. This is a pretty dirty way to care for your team members. I hope no one else goes through this kind of garbage from their company.

UPDATE: My Insurance was reinstated by 15:30 and I was able to go through with my sleep study.

That sounds like a lawsuit tbh. I would contact a lawyer and find out what your rights are amd what laws are potentially broken.

I work in HR (not in the trucking industry), if you had health coverage through your employer and your terminated employment (for any reason) they are required to send you a COBRA notice prior to terminating your coverage so that you can continue your coverage, however it would be without and subsidy from your company. The only way I would think they can otherwise terminate your coverage is if you failed to comply with requirements (such as providing required documents) or you failed to pay whatever portion of the coverage you are held responsible for.
