    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 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.

    How do I choose a rehabilitation facility?

    Finding a place for a family member after a hospitalization, injury or illness can be a difficult task. They may be unable to live independently and require inpatient care in the short or long term. The most important thing to do is take a tour of the facility. Ask questions of the staff and Admissions Coordinator and be sure to address any special needs. We suggest you tour more than one place to find the best one for you.

    What should I do if I have a work injury or work-related illness?

    1. 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.
    2. Take down the names and addresses of all witnesses to the accident that caused your injury.
    3. 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.
    4. Make copies of all work restrictions that your doctor gives you. Keep a copy and give the original to your employer.
    5. 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.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.

    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.
