regarding health insurance

Hi,
I came to the USA in November 2012 on an immigrant visa (J1). I did not have health cover for the month of nov and dec-12 though I had started my work. Now, I thought I should take the insurance cover staring from Jan-13 from my employer's scheme. However, there is a technical problem. It seems I have to produce the documents showing any previous insurance till December which actually I don't have. Can anyone suggest me what can be done and what might be the consequences?

Re: regarding health insurance

You would just have to sign a statement that you had no coverage and explain why - immigrant visa, etc. There will probably be a waiting period before your coverage can begin. Your HR person can tell you what that might be.
