Can My Employer Make Me Pay My Group Health Insurance Premium While Im Out Of Work And Receiving Workers Compensation Income Or Disability Benefits

Employers generally are not required to maintain health insurance for injured workers, so you may be required to pay your own health insurance premiums while you’re out of work and receiving income benefits or disability benefits.  That said, you may have rights with respect to COBRA Insurance and FMLA.  Also, you may be enrolled in a short-term or long-term disability plan that may provide coverage for some medical treatment.
