No Diagnosis; Insurance & Disability

August 29, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Perhaps your neuro is doing you a favor, for Now.

Do I understand you are still working?

If yes, do you have short and, particularly, long-term disability coverage?

If you do not have it, can you add it?

My work place insurance only allowed changes during the annual enrollment, or following a qualifying event such as marriage or divorce.

Find out what benefits you do have while you are still working.

If you lose your job you should be eligible for COBRA coverage for up to 18 months, longer if you are disabled. However, you may dearly for it.

It’s a tough position to be in. Good luck.
