My company recently terminated me because of a back injury I got on the job, but said it was due to "poor performance". Should I tell the medical clinic and insurance company involved that I am no longer employed there? I don't want to get stuck with any medical expenses but need to keep getting medical treatment for now.

It makes no diference as long as the treatment is related to the same work related back injury you got. Your company insurance should pay all bills because the accident happened while you were employed there. The medical coverage does not stop just because you no longer work there.

Thanks for reply.
I just found out after last posting that the insurance company told the clinic yesterday they will not authorize any more med.visits or therapy until they are done with investigation which takes up to 90 days. They will let me know if claim is accepted on 10/15/00.
Clinic told me previous visits are covered but any after yesterday aren't.
The last doctor I saw there said not to worry, to come in whenever I'm in pain or need more medication.
Sounds like some serious confusion of information. What is this about?
