Can Health Care Be Taken Out Of My Check?

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about health care: Can I also tell my boss I don’t want health care, even though it’s not offered?

I work for a family owned company that has a total of 5 stores throughout the Chicago area and suburbs. I work about 25-30 hours a week and I do not have any dependents. I get 15% off my check for taxes. I see that some of that 15% says for medical care but my employer does not offer us health care. My sister said she told her boss she didn’t want health care so they are not discounting health care from her pay, though she works at a large company.
