I was injured (shoulder) on the job and the State of Oregon and SAIF have accepted my claim. I have done all the required therapy and gone to all the doctor appointments asked of me. The doctors have said that my shoulder is as good as it gets but it will never be 100% again. They have released me back to work with limitations. I have found other employment that better fits my abilities at this time. So no more disability checks will be issued.
It looks like we are going to settle the claim somewhere between 20-25K.
So now to my question. Am I going to have a hard time finding health insurance after I retire? This will be about ten years from now. I hear it is hard to get and can be very expensive if I could find any. Mostly because I will have a disability claim/judgment on my record.
Tell me what you know,
Thanks in advance,
