    Mission Fire Fighter wins yet another round against TML
    12/28/18 - IAFF Local 3609
    Salinas said Tuesday that he is seeking $100,000 from the insurance carrier to assist in covering for four surgeries he underwent as part of his cancer treatment. At a February news conference, representatives with the TSAFF said Salinas was exposed to carcinogens as part of the hazards of his work as a firefighter that led to his cancer, and Chapter 607 of the Texas Government Code, known as the “presumptive statute,” ensures treatment of job-related illnesses. In a Monday news release, TSAFF announced that the Texas Department of Insurance appeals panel rejected TML’s denial of workers compensation insurance for Salinas’ kidney cancer treatment coverage. TDI Administrative Law Judge Julio Gomez, Jr. ordered TML Intergovernmental Risk Pool to pay for the denied medical care.

Ruling that Salinas “sustained a compensable injury, in the form of an occupational disease,” Texas Department of Insurance Administrative Law Judge Julio Gomez, Jr. ordered the insurer to pay for the denied coverage of medical care. The City of Mission has not announced whether it will appeal the ruling. Salinas said, “This ruling is a great step forward, but our fight is not over. We must ensure that no sick Texas firefighters will be forced to fight both cancer and insurance red tape.
