  • Mission Firefighter wins appeal against TML

    Mission Firefighter Wins Latest Round In Fight for Cancer Treatment Coverage Denied by Texas Municipal League

    AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 8, 2018 – Mission firefighter Homer Salinas prevailed in a contested hearing to appeal the TML Intergovernmental Risk Pool’s denial of workers compensation insurance coverage for his kidney cancer treatment, the Texas State Association of Fire Fighters (TSAFF) announced today.  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. My family and I are grateful for the support of the Mission community and of firefighters around Texas.”
