What can I do if my employer terminated me on the day of a medical appointment?

Question Details: I was working as a HVAC purchaser for a company. They terminated me the day I went to the hospital for an appointment. Now through that employer I paid into the short-term disability insurance. I had surgery 10/23 and the hospital submitted my papers to the insurance company. The insurance company contacted me because they need the forms from the employer and they are not submitting the necessary documentation so that the claims examiner can determine my eligibility. I am about to be evicted from my home because I cannot pay the back rent.
