i have a friend who has leukemia. FMLA has run out. Can employer make her pay her insurance premium?


She was diagnosed in July and had to have a bone marrow transplant. Her doctors are telling her 6 months before she returns to work. Can employer make her pay her full insurance premium? Is her job still protected?

As the others have said.... No, her job is not protected, and yes, they can make her pay her own insurance. They can terminate her, and she would then have to pay for Cobra. And she really IS looking at atleast 6 months if not longer before returning to work. If she was just diagnosed in July, she cant be too far out from her transplant. Almost all literature says that the patient will be out of work for a year after their transplant, and that is very accurate. I returned to school instead of work but couldnt do so until about a year and 2 months after transplant. I am almost a year and a half out, and still have major issues with fatigue and gvhd. And that year the literature recommends is going on the assumption that the patient does not have any major complications.

She needs to have a social worker at her transplant center help her apply for public benefits. She should have done that in the first place, patients going through a bone marrow transplant are an almost immediate approval for disability and medicaid/medicare.
