Not sure what you mean. An amount is deducted from every paycheck, whether you are paid weekly, every 2 weeks or monthly.

How the insurance is paid is based on company policy.
they may take it once per month
They may divide it 26 times (that's how many times you get paid if you are paid every 2 weeks)
they may divide it by 24 times (twice a month)

I'm not sure what you're asking. As a rule, if you get paid every 2 weeks, every payday 2 weeks' worth of insurance premiums are deducted, paid. You're insured no matter when an injury or sickness occurs. Your employer could be an exception to the rule and deduct your premiums once a month. In that case, once a month you'll have a small paycheck.

No. Like "Anonymous" said, your paycheck every two weeks means you will get 26 checks and not 24. So your employer's benefits and payroll department will divide your deductions to pay for your insurance in total for the year by 26, so they can take an equal amount out at each pay period. The same is done with your income taxes, social security, and all other deductions made to your payroll check.
i.e. don't think of it as two checks a month for 24 checks. That is wrong unless you are paid bi-monthly. If you are paid every two weeks, then think of it as being paid every other week for 52 weeks, 26 times a year. That's how they calculate it and divide it up. It also means a more consistent, equal pay each payroll date.

No, he divides your annual premium cost by 26 to get the payment per paycheck.
