Not prosecuted but if it turns up in the medical records they could drop you or re-rate you. Sorry, the person.
Do I have cause for a lawsuit to re coup my losses?
answered on Feb 4, 2019
Depends on the damage as to whether it is worth the costs of looking at it. however, I would suggest you contact a member of the Pa. Ass. for Justice in your area who handles medical carelessness cases.

Yes, you then have a right to "buy in" under COBRA. However, if its a sucky plan, you would perhaps want to sign up for an ACA plan. Talk to the attorney who is advising you on comp.
I am RN . I accidently wrongly put in a doctors order for a narc in the wrong resident name , I told another nurse when the med arrived he told me what to do send it back to pharmacy he faced it over and I called them . Can I get charged for this ???
answered on Apr 23, 2018
Anyone can get charged criminally for anything, and it happens all the time. Will it happen to you? No idea.
If it does, and it really was a mistake at work, then cooperate with the authorities and tell them what happened. Same with your employer. If you did nothing intentionally wrong... Read more »

Who is the therapist's client? You invited her there which indicates some relationship. She owed duties to her client. Her behavior sound slightly unprofessional, and you should calmly ask for an explanation before proceeding further.
At a minimum she seems to be triangulating which is... Read more »

Depends on your competence level. Contact Community Legal Services to start with--see if they have a disabilty rights project.
Evaluation was done in NY where incident occurred, but only saying it's too old. Clean record since. No issues. Just moved to PA from NY and applying for license here in PA. Left NY license in good standing after finishing legal process.

Not sure what evaluation you need, but if you had some situation it was needed for Pa. and most states require that on reapplication you may need another.

Not, not unless you're court-ordered to do so or have adopted them.
My girlfriend is 17, in high school, and in a foster care home.

Yes, but more importantly if she feels she is threatened with abuse now she needs to reach out to a counselor or other person in a similar position. She wouldn't lose all state assistance but really needs to talk to a social worker or similar.
Idk how much he makes. He is remarried & has a mortgage in her name. Can i still qualify for support?? I rent my place.

To get an answer to this question, you really need to talk to a family lawyer near you. There are a number of questions that a lawyer needs to ask to give you an answer and explain how to achieve your goal of getting support.

First, you need to respond to the case--even if it's bogus doing nothing is not an optiion. They may be a group that does the collections for a doctor group. Attached to the complaint should be the bill. If you had health insrurance and they didn't cover you need to consider adding them... Read more »

You can tell them you did not consent to the services they are billing you. If they have a debt collector call you you file a complaint with the medical board that licenses dentists.

The closer she gets to 18 the more rights she has. However, I'm not sure the hospital wouldn't want you there. Contact the hospital social worker because obviously there is pushback and just forcing yourself isn't going to help smoothe things out for either of you.
