How can I get questions answered about the Affordable Care Act?
We recommend that people start with speaking to a trained professional. Trained insurance professionals or a navigator with MN Sure can help you determine if you are eligible for a variety of programs which have become available because of the Affordable Care Act. There are a lot of factors to take in consideration; like monthly premiums, deductibles, out-of-pocket expenses, co-pays and most importantly, which doctors one may see. A trained insurance professional may help you navigate through all of the changes of the Affordable Care Act and find a plan that works for you.
What should I do if I have a work injury or work-related illness?
- Contact your employer and report the injury or illness - even if you think it is minor and you will heal without medical treatment. That way there is a record that can be referred to if your injury worsens. Use a company form, if one is available. If not, write down the facts of your injury, along with the date and time and the name of the person you reported it to. If possible, keep a copy of your report.
- Take down the names and addresses of all witnesses to the accident that caused your injury.
- Get medical care, even if you think your injury is minor, and make sure the doctor has a complete description of the accident that caused your injury or the work activities or conditions you believe caused your work-related disability. Take care of your injury.
- Make copies of all work restrictions that your doctor gives you. Keep a copy and give the original to your employer.
- Keep track of all time off work, all mileage to and from doctors, physical therapists and any other health care professionals. Save all medical records given to you and all prescription bills and receipts. Save all letters from your employer and your employer's workers compensation insurance company concerning your injury.
- Do not sign any documents unless you fully understand the documents. If there is any doubt in your mind about what the documents mean, you should contact a Workers' Compensation lawyer.
- If you have not received Workers' Compensation benefits or a notice that you will be receiving Workers' Compensation benefits within a reasonable time period contact a Workers' Compensation lawyer.

Do you need to plug-in hybrid vehicles to charge the battery?
No. These nickel-metal hydride batteries are charged by an internal combustion engine (ICE) driven generator and/or by regenerative braking that captures power from deceleration and braking. And, they have a computer sensor that makes sure the batteries never completely run out of power.

What are the effects of ethanol or E85 fuel?
Flex fuel vehicles are vehicles that run on gasoline or E85, a fuel that contains up to 15 percent of ethanol. While Fuel economy will be substantially lower for any vehicle that uses E85 due to its lower energy, flex fuels make a difference at the pump by costing roughly 50 cents less per gallon. Vehicles that are designed for flex fuel, will have no difficulty switching back and forth between fuels. There are no issues with mixing E85 with unleaded gasoline in any ratio. The ECU senses the E85/unleaded gasoline ratio and adjusts engine performance accordingly.
What is the difference between worker's compensation and personal injury?
Both involve physical injuries. However, if you are injured in the job, it is called workers compensation. The workers compensation procedure is more straightforward and does not involve a court trial or a jury. Since it is so different, if you have a workers compensation injury, you should turn to the workers compensation page on this web site.
