What if I can't go back to work or my employer fires me or won't take me back after I have healed?
If your doctor says your injury has caused permanent restrictions (like restrictions on lifting, bending or standing), then you receive additional benefits based on the amount of disability the doctor states. If your employer has a job within those permanent restrictions, it must offer that job to you or be subject to a penalty. But if there is no work within your restrictions, the employer does not have to take you back. You may also be entitled to more benefits because you cannot go back to your job or you may get retraining benefits to send you back to school so that you can get a job that pays as much as the job you lost.

Is synthetic motor oil better than conventional oil and what are the benefits?
With today’s technology, synthetics tend to be cleaner and provide better performance than conventional oil. Their composition is much cleaner, because it is derived in a laboratory rather than nature, and it has been proven to have a lower volatility and therefore not vaporize out the exhaust as quickly.
Synthetics have also been shown to produce less resistance, improving horsepower and the overall efficiencyof the engine. This added horsepower in return means that the engine will be able to perform at the same level as before, but using slightly less gas.
How do I pay for nursing home care?
Chris Jensen accepts Medicare, Medical Assistance, many approved insurances and private payment. To qualify for some Medicare benefits, you must be hospitalized for at least 3 days and meet additional criteria. You will also need to have certain special services provided at the nursing facility. This could be a complex wound care, Physical therapy, Occupational therapy or Speech therapy services, IV medications, alternative nutritional support, a new chronic illness diagnosis or a need for self-care education. Medicare will pay for 100% of room and board, therapy and medications for the first 20 days. After 20 days there is a daily co-payment. Some insurance plans will pay your co-pay and others will not. Coverage may last up to 100 days.
Medical Assistance is based on individual financial situation. An application may be completed through St. Louis County. Our social workers are happy to assist with this and other forms of insurance.

How can I save money on my auto insurance premiums?
By getting your defensive drivers certificate, you not only become a more attentive driver, you will also receive a discount on your insurance premium. Another way to save money on your annual auto premiums is to look at raising your deductibles on comprehensive and collision coverage. The higher the deductible means the lower the premium. Again, insuring your home and auto together with one company will save you money on your annual insurance premiums” multi-policy discount.
