Years of Nursing Home work -Nursing Home refused to cover injury, stating you should report it within 30 days. Do not take ownership or Liability. Their Insurance and Companies refused to give authorization for test and treatment. Why aren’t policies in place to help solve medical issues of this sort for Nurses? Workman Compensation to cover over six months. Applied for the Health insurance and didn’t it until after 6 months. I was first offered low monthly installments with $1200 hundred deductible as told me i would have to pay if admitted to hospital. Primary MD must do referral to specialist.
