question for everyone...i am currently receiving 1800 a month, still payable for the next 3 years, due to an amputation. i am getting full medical care for life, including medication, for a closed head injury that has caused seizures, currently under control, and of course, for the leg, prosthetics. i have an awesome adjuster who is very helpful and has been approving everything i need and want.
the subject came up today of a settlement of future care. it came up because i was asking about a lump sum payment for the remaining monies i am getting monthly. that is not an option, she said (as did a rep at the state) but she said this settlement is. soon she will be sending an amount over for me to look at, i guess...she is talking to their lawyer.
i am curious, what could i be expecting, and what would this do to any future medical care? and if i would lose the medical care, would existing private insurance cover it, or would it be considered pre-existing? just curious!
i am currently working again, back full duty...and of course, live in az...thanks!
oh yes, i will be 36 in november of this year...
