Yes I applied for FMLA but I used it all up and not eligable again til May 20. While that's not far off a lot could happen from now til then.
I just started getting SSDI, the reason I'm working is because they are being really slow getting me medicare, I have no idea why, they said I should hear something within a week. I applied all the way back in September! So my employers insurance is the only insurance I can depend on right now, if I'm denied medicare I will fight it. I live in Ohio which is one of the slowest states when it comes to that stuff. My social worker thinks it's because I have my employers insurance and thinks I won't get it for that reason, but I should, right? I tried getting disability through my employer but they will not count dialysis and kidney failure as a disability in my employer's eyes.
Hi Chillicothe, are you from chillicothe ohio? That's where I grew up.
Amy, I tried STD, my doctor filled out the forms, but I was denied because my employer's STD dept told me dialysis wasn't a disability. My doctor even sent them labs and any info he possibly could think of.
