Depending on your group health insurance plan, you may be eligible for sick pay, short-term disability, or long-term disability. Each group health insurance plan is different with various requirements and qualifications in order to access the benefits.
If you require long-term disability benefits, you may be required to get an assessment from your doctor demonstrating that you are too sick to return to work.
Be sure to contact your human resources department for more information on all of your options.
