Re: back pain,and need surgery but have no Insurance

You can see if your state offers an uninsured program to provide healthcare. Does your employment offer medical insurance? And if so can you return to work until that kicks in. I never take a job unless it offers good medical and disability insurance. I assume that you may be in a job where your employer doesn't offer disability insurance as well?
