AWW/TD increase (California)

Postby Attyin909 on Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:39 am

I represent an Injured Worker and he is adamant that he gets a AWW increase due to having to pay Cobra. I have never heard of this. Can anyone shed light on this topic. I assume he lost his health insurance and now has been switched to Cobra.

Health Insurance and other related benefits such as LTD, STD, Dental and vision insurance values are NOT calculated n the AWW. If he wants the health insurance he pays the COBRA, if he can't afford the COBRA he needs to go to Covered California and apply to see if he qualifies for Medi-Cal or other insurance.
