How Do My Medical Bills Get Paid After An Accident?

You may wonder how your medical expenses will get paid if you’re injured. Well, you can get your expense paid by doing the following things.

  • Submit bills to the health insurance company

Suppose you have health insurance through your or your spouse’s employment, then I suggest you submit your medical expenses to your health insurance company.

Now, some health insurance companies will tell you they won’t pay those expenses because you’ve been involved in a car wreck or some other type of accident or incident that has caused you injuries. 

That’s ridiculous.

Submit your medical bills to your health insurance company and if they refuse to pay them, then call your attorney to make sure they pay, as they’re bound to pay them.

  • Use medical payment coverage.

You may have to look at your automobile insurance if you don’t have health insurance and you’ve been in a car wreck because you may have coverage called medical payments coverage.

What does that mean? 

You have paid for insurance coverage to help you pay for medical expenses that may have been caused by an accident.

  • Get a letter written by an attorney.

Now, if you don’t have health insurance and medical payments insurance, you might be thinking, how do I get my medical bills paid? You may only be able to get them paid once your case is resolved. 

So hiring a lawyer to represent you for your injury claim is essential. 

That lawyer can send a letter to the doctors, hospitals, physical therapists, and chiropractors, asking them to withhold collection on medical expenses until your case has been resolved.

Most doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and hospitals are glad to hold off if your lawyer commits.

So if you’ve been injured and don’t have health insurance, or medical payments coverage, you can still ensure that your medical costs are not getting turned over by contacting an attorney and asking that attorney to write a letter on your behalf indicating that you are in the middle of a claim. And you will pay those medical expenses when your claim is finished. 

I hope this answers your question.
