My story is I got injured at work 3 weeks ago where a 400-lb dumpster enclosure gate fell on me and fractured my foot. My husband brought me to Kaiser ER because I am under his insurance. I got seen and had to be put on a splint and crutches. I just called my boss about the injury the same day as she was out of the office that day. I got referred to Occupational Medicine two days after since it was work related. I saw the workers comp MD and he placed me off work for 2 weeks. I gave my boss the DWC form for her to fill up but it turns out that she is uninsured! When the worker's comp MD found out about it, he said he cannot see me anymore since my boss was uninsured. He advised me to continue seeing my PCP/ortho for continued treatment since I am a member of Kaiser anyways. I saw the ortho guy again and he put me off work for another 4 weeks because the fracture is not healing. BTW, my boss verbally told me that she is willing to pay for all the expenses. I am also aware of the Uninsured Employers Fund. It just sounds too complicated and we have called a couple of law firms and they said they dont specialize in that. My question is, is it okay to use your own health insurance for a work related injury? How will I get reimbursed if I use my own health insurance?
