Frequently Asked Question

Can an employer cancel Health Insurance while on Workers' Compensation?

No punitive actions can be taken against an employee with a filed workers’ compensation claim, so coverage cannot be canceled in response to a claim, but there is no general protection for health coverage, and it could be allowed to lapse in some circumstances. Additional filings, such as Family Medical Leave of Absence (FMLA) may be required to provide extra layers of protection.
