I TOO WAS INJURED ON THE JOB BACK IN OCT. 2000. I HAVE HAD SURGERY IN DECEMBER ON C6-7. 1997 HAD 5-6 FUSED. EVER SINCE I HAD SURGERY IN DECEMBER I HAVE A DIFFERENT PAIN BUT HAVE HAD IT SINCE COMING OUT OF ANESTHIA. BETWEEN SHOULDER BLADES. SEVER HEADACHES. HAVE BEEN GOING TO PAIN CLINIC. NOTHING IS HELPING AS OF YET. BUT MY QUESTIONS ARE: ONE I AM RECEIVING WORKMANS COMP. DOES MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT HAVE TO PAY FOR HEALTH INSURANCE? I KNOW THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MY MEDICAL BILLS RELATED TO INJURY BUT WHAT ABOUT MY HEALTH INSURANCE? QUESTION 2 ACCORDING TO MY UNION CONTRACT ONCE YOU ARE OUT 6 MONTHS YOU'VE LOST YOUR JOB. SO TODAY I HAD TO SAY GOOD BY TO A PLACE I'VE WORKED 21 YRS. I PROBABLY HAVE NERVE DAMAGE ACCORDING TO MY PAIN DR. AND ACCORDING TO MY PHYSICIAN SHE HAS SAID TO APPLY FOR SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY AS I AM NOT ABLE TO WORK BECAUSE OF CHRONIC PAIN AND FUSIONS AND THAT IM NOT IN PHYSICAL CONDITION. WORKMANS COMP HAS TO PAY ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE RIGHT? THAT IS IF I DONT SIGN OFF OR TAKE A PAY OUT. I WOULD BE CRAZY TO TAKE A PAY OUT I HAVE 20 YEARS BEFORE RETIREMENT. MY QUESTION IS WHEN IM GETTING WC AND SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY WHEN I RECEIVE MY RETIREMENT MONEY TO ROLL OVER INTO SOMETHING ELSE COULD I USE THIS TO PAY OFF BILLS OR BECAUSE IM RECEIVING SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY AND WC I AM NOT ABLE TO USE THIS UNTIL RETIREMENT? THANKS FOR ANY HELP. ALSO IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO E-MAIL ME AND TALK ABOUT THEIR SIMILAR PAIN AND CERVICAL FUSIONS I WOULD BE HAPPY TO DISCUSS. THANKS AGAIN CHRIS
