    Glad the site is back up and running!

    Yes I too was wondering what TAA means.

    I am WAG which is very close to TAA. I have a lot of friends who have TAA though. I am getting nervous! Is anyone else? I just keep having this nightmare that something goes wrong before I start. Am I paranoid. TAA is for people who have lost their job to an overseas market.

    I looked up WAG and TAA. For anyone else who was curious, but doesn't feel like investigating:

    WAG: The Workforce Acceleration Grant is designed to help Hoosiers pay for education and training to prepare for 21st Century jobs. The program provides eligible Hoosiers with up to $3,000 per academic year to help cover tuition, fees and book costs for an associate’s degree or a vocational certification at more than 50 colleges and universities across the state.

    The two categories of qualifications include low income participants and unemployed workers.

    TAA: The Trade Act programs, Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA), assist individuals who have become unemployed as a result of increased imports from, or shifts in production to, foreign countries. The goal of the Trade Act programs is to help trade-affected workers return to suitable employment as quickly as possible. To facilitate this goal, TAA certified workers may access a menu of services that include income support, relocation allowances job search allowances, and a health coverage tax credit. TAA participants that require retraining in order to obtain suitable employment may receive occupational training.

    If you go to each of those websites, you can find out about who qualifies.

    On a different note, I was wondering if anyone has gone to a Marion County Health Department to get their immunizations, and if so, what you were required to pay. Did you have to pay a flat $10 administrative fee, or did they charge you $35 for the Hep B shot as well?

    I went to the Marion County Health Department. I didn't have to pay an admin fee. Just for the Hep B, flu shot and chicken pox vaccine...

    I don't really understand what you mean.

    I was told by someone who works for the Marion County Health Department that if you show them something that indicates you are a student and the immunizations you are receiving are required by the school, they will administer all of them: for example, two TB tests, two chicken pox vaccines, and a tetanus shot, all for one flat fee of $10. I was told that MMR vaccines also fall under this category. If you only needed one thing, say the tetanus shot, it would be $10, but if you needed two or more, it would still be $10. This fee is referred to as an administration fee.

    The person I spoke with said that the shots in the Hep B series were the only shots that were not included under the flat rate of $10. You or I would be required to pay a fee of $35 per Hep B shot, along with a flat rate of $10 for any other shots or tests we needed.

    However, another poster, Carlos, said that he received vaccinations in Hancock County and didn't even have to pay the $35 for the Hep B series. He only had to pay a flat $10 fee. I believe he told them something along the lines of, "I want to use the Indiana plan," or something like that to receive the reduced rate.

    I'm having trouble figuring out what plan he's referring to, or finding people that know what it is called and who qualifies for it.

    Did you pay a separate fee for each of the shots you received?

    Where I live I got my shots for free, but my tb is $5, which is no biggie Hey, I am a bit concerned though--on my background check someone elses name was found relating to my SSN..that is scary to me
  7. by   JM625
    They knew I was a student and I still had to pay the full amount...

    davilyn: That sounds really scary. I wonder who you should or can talk to about that.

    JM625: . I wonder if you have to be particularly adamant about receiving a discount or something. Also, one person I talked to who worked with the MCHD told me about the $10 flat fee + $35 per Hep B shot, while another person who worked there didn't know anything about them (she was also working on a day the clinic was closed, which was the excuse she gave for being unsure of discounts/rates, though). :/ I'm sorry.

    Well that stinks, I was also told by Marion County I would only have to pay $10.

    It sounds like everyone is off and running to get everything done. I have an dr's appointment tomorrow so I'm hoping to get as much done as possible. I think I will try to get my tb test done at the health department so I don't have to drive all the way to my dr's office to get the results read and have the 2nd one taken. We have to wait until later this week to get our password for the background check and drug screen. Although I have never committed a crime I always get nervous about background checks. Don't know why. I just hope I can get everything done without any issues.

    Got my first step of my TB and it was negative! My background check and drug screen came back fine, too. I still have to get my Hep B, MMR booster, 2nd step for TB, and have my chidhood records retrieved to prove I had chicken pox, and that should be it. Whew!

    Has anyone tried to find other scrub pants yet? I haven't even been by the bookstore to grab the uniform. I just wonder if the color is hard to match-up with other stores?? I guess I'll have to head over there soon to check everything out.

    I'm not sure what the official color is, but I believe the brand name is Landau. That brand is sold on various internet sites but yeah, we'd have to find out the official color name first, and the style.

    I think I have to get mine from the bookstore--oh and they are pleated--I am going to look like I am pregnant. Anyways, I feel like I am half way there..one more TB next week and then my CPR on 12/12 (for only $20)--oh yeah We are getting close guys!
