    Maybe someone can give me an answer. I had been on workers comp for 9 months since November 2015 due to a bad shoulder, my question is if after a year would I lose my health insurance with BCBS. Not sure how that works. Thanks.

    You have the option to pay for Cobra insurance. It will cost around $900.00 a month depending where you are located.

    Thanks, seems like its very expensive to cover wife and two of my daughters.

    I doubt you are going to get Cobra insurance for 4 people for $900. Heck--my wife pays almost $700 a month just for medical for herself. When I retired I checked on it out of curiosity and they wanted $1200 for just us two.

    Obamacare has nothing to do with this.

    Check with your local.
    I've been out with a w/c shoulder injury too. And, my business agent said they can cancel my benefits after 4 consecutive months of not working.

    If your on comp i'm surprised the union hasn't cancelled your ins already. Next you will probably have a fax war with Aetna.
