Are you having trouble getting your medical bills paid after a car wreck? If so, we can help.
At Dennis and King, we worry about your medical bills so you don’t have to. It is true that getting you more money in a settlement or a lawsuit really is important to us, but that is not all we do. We are also here to lower your stress level so all you have to worry about is recovering from a car wreck or personal injuries.
Here are six tricks we have to make sure your medical bills are getting paid and you aren’t not getting collections notices.
If you are injured while on the job, worker’s compensation insurance is actually the primary payer and all of your bills can be sent to them.
Med Pay Car Insurance
This is coverage your own auto insurance policy that almost every Georgia and Tennessee auto policy. There is at least $1,000 to $5,000 dollars available to cover medical bills no matter who is at fault.
Once you have exhausted the medical payments coverage of your car insurance, you can use your health insurance, just like someone who was not in a crash.
For those with an attorney, the next tool available to handle medical bills are “attorney liens” against the eventual settlement. This lets the patient get the care they need and the doctor waits to get paid out of the settlement of the end of the case.
Out of Pocket
Once you run out of all other option, you may have to pay expenses out of pocket temporarily. An attorney can make sure that all out of pocket costs are covered at the end of the case by the liability insurance on the car that hit you.
