Your employer can certainly cut your hours without notice.  Whether you continue to qualify for benefits depends on what the published qualifications are for your company's benefits and whether you actually meet those qualifications.  How you're "labeled" doesn't really matter.  Typically a company will set forth a minimum number of average hours per week or month in order to qualify for benefits.  That's what I'd focus on if I were you. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
