Can I decline health insurance and pocket what my employer had to pay?

With the changes in health insurance in the US, I can stay on my parent's insurance until I'm 26.
I'm currently a contractor with no health benefits at my current company, but will become full-time soon. I have one more year until I'm 26, can I decline insurance for now and ask the company to reimburse me what they would've paid otherwise?
