Tore my ACL and Meniscus and had surgery last August. The graft didn't take and I am still with left with no ACL and some tearing in the meniscus. Basically the surgery failed. I have decided not to go through with another surgery and would just like to cash out. I am 33 years old and a specialized athlete, I can no longer do my sport (much less any sport) and have been out of work for 1 1/2 years. My leg has now atrophied and the pain is constant. They sent me for a QME in June and the Dr. rated me at 10% (this is before an MRI confirmed the surgery failed).
Will the Affordable Care Act impact my case at all?
