California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
If I got injury or illness, my job terminated me, I collected state disability for 1 year, and I don't afford to buy COBRA insurance, now what happen if I'm in the hospital the whole time starting from the day that I was still working but got illness or injured until after I got terminated by employer for being in the hospital and could not show up for work. The minute the employer terminated me, I did not have my insurance no more due to Not-Afforded COBRA, then who will take care of my hospital bill while I'm still in the hospital (maybe in coma situation)?
Thank you very much for your help ;-)
