If you are injured in an accident, it is critical that you seek medical attention immediately. It is critically important that you get the proper medical care you need to treat your injuries and to recover properly.
Do Not Let The Issue of Paying Medical Bills Prevent You From Seeking the Treatment You Need to Recover
After an injury, even if your injury was caused by the negligence or other failure on the part of someone else, you may use you health insurance benefits. Though, it is important to understand that in cases where medical treatment is paid for by the wrong insurance company, or by your own health insurance company, they may seek to be reimbursed from any compensation you receive from a settlement or jury award after trial.
You may have other options to help you pay for the medical treatment you need as well.
In addition to any health care coverage you have, you may also have a benefit on your auto insurance policy called “Medical Payments Coverage.” This type of coverage will help you pay for your medical care if you are injured in a car accident. Contact your insurance carrier and ask if this is a benefit of your policy.
You may also be eligible for Medicare or Medicaid. These are federal health insurance programs that are available to qualifying individuals.
