On the topic of job loss through injury/illness:

I've noticed that the majority of off-list responses
deal with medical insurance ... and the fact that
employees often are not FULLY covered for long-
term injury or disability under the insurance plan
provided through/by their employer.

To be honest, I've never read the fine print in my
medical plan. One person noted that his plan
only covered him until he could "return to work",
and that meant ANY kind of work. Another person
noted that the cost of additional disability insurance
was prohibitive, possibly because job loss from
disability is far more common (and more costly
to insurance companies) than job loss from death.

Other people noted that they did not lose their
jobs because of injuries or illness, but they lost
the confidence of their employer and got a reputation
for being weak (fragile health) or undependable.

Just thought I would bring this to the list, since these
issues are (conspicuously) not being raised in full
public view.

Cheers, Rowena
