    Change in reply by Jim Hayes to Hi Mary,<br /><br />There must be clear and convincing evidence that an error was made, which could be challenging in the situation you described (as Erin already pointed out). We've seen employers who've allowed changes in the situation you describe and we've seen employers who have not allowed it. My recommendation would be to provide as much "proof" as possible of what the intended election was and kindly ask for grace from the employer. Evidence could include previous year medical expenses that only totaled up to the election amount your friend intended to make, any kind of written communication between your friend and someone else about the election, etc. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions..
