When injured in an accident, the insurance company for the at-fault-driver does not pay until the very end, because, until they review all of the records on your treatment, they do not know if your treatment is related to the accident or not so the law requires your car ’ s medical insurance coverage, if any, to pay first and then your health insurance to pay second. Therefore, give the claim number and contact information for your medical claim handler for your car insurance to each medical provider and also provide your regular health insurance information to each medical provider. If your car insurance policy, which is usually around five thousand dollars, is exhausted and you have no other insurance coverage, some medical providers are willing to take injury cases on and wait for payment until the matter is settled. Our office can discuss those possibilities with you. Call today.
