Legal Question in Administrative Law in California

II was at work. I started having bad period pain. I asked to sit down. I said I have had this before, said I felt like throwing up, and did. Meanwhile my boss said she was going to call the ambulance. I said no, this happens to me occasionally. As I was throwing up, she called the ambulance. They took me to the hospital. Diagnosis was vasovagal syncope, basically pain. And a ruptured ovarian cyst they found after all the testing. Work does not want to pay for the ambulance and the hospital. I had said I didn't want her to call the ambulance.
