Bummer. My settlement injury is lower back sprain. My SI Joint issues are not the injury being settled on therefor my BCBS will still pay for it.
I sat down and went over everything again last night and have 8am mtg with my lawyer. After talking w my husband and goin over everything I am ok. Being on these meds I had forgotten some answers to my concerns and my husband was saying "remember, your lawyer said...." when I wld ask him about things.
So I have a clearer mind now. And I am ok with things.
My only remaining concern is with OVR and settlement. If they are goin to be looking for reimbursement for services and if they will continue to pay for retraining or if they would expect me to pay for retraining out of my settlement, if so then I wld need to ask the IC for the $$ that OVR wld have been hiving me for retraining. Cause i am already into it and wont have much $$ to fork over for OVR services.
After a long remenicing night. I am ok. Still in pain (but my friend thot it wld be funny last night at her childs bday party to haul off and smack my right butt cheek. As hard as if she was swingin a bowling ball, she had forgotten about my injury....... Hate hidden pain, she was joking around but now I am paying for it)
but I am ok.
Signing on the dotted line tomorrow. Any last words of wisdom I shld be looking for as far as how things are worded in paperwork?
Not planin on filing for SSDI just yet since I am trying to return to some work, but may at a later day and want it worded right for them. I may after 18 month of my health insurance, and if I cannot find a job due to my injury, end up filing.
Also i pay child support for my oldest who chose to live w his father. How will it need to be worded for this? I am up to date w payments and owe nothing outstanding.
And OVR, if they look at monthly income as ability to pay for services?
Thanks for everyones advice and this forum made it soo much easier to deal with issues I have faced with my case. Much appriciated.
