Did you know that the price you pay for medical treatment varies drastically from other people? And that if you are a personal injury victim from a car accident, often times your medical providers are trying to take money from our settlement! Let me explain how I can help you save money on your medical bills after a car accident.
Will The At Fault Person’s Auto Insurance Pay For My Medical Bills First?
You may be surprised to learn that the answer is “no.” That is, while the at fault party’s insurer may ultimately move to settle your case, and that settlement may include in general some amount towards medical bills, that company will not pay your bills as they become due!
This is a huge reason why you need to hire the best personal injury lawyers! At Bottaro Law, we are dedicated to giving you the best advice and fighting for your interests, including how to get your medical bills paid on time, and at as little cost to you as possible.
Who Should Pay My Medical Bills After My Car Accident?
First, please refer to my past blogs and call or text me 24/7 for a free consultation on this very important question. As I have covered before, you need our legal help in answering this question first and it does differ from case to case.
How Can I Save Money On Medical Bills After A Car Accident?
There are several secrets and lesser known tips on saving money on medical bills after a personal injury such as a car accident. In Rhode Island and Massachusetts where we typically practice personal injury law, it does matter which law applies. The following tips are meant to be general points – I sincerely encourage you to text or call us (401-777-7777) 24/7 to discuss your case in specific detail.
First, in a PIP state such as Massachusetts, we want to investigate whether PIP insurance applies and if so, to what amount? That is, if you have PIP coverage, we can help you apply for these benefits that can pay first for bills uncovered by their plans and/or for deductibles and co-payments.
For car accidents in non-PIP situations, such as where Rhode Island auto insurance applies, than it be that your health insurance is primary. This means that we may need to “coordinate benefits” to help ensure that your medical bills are getting properly and timely processed.
If you have health insurance, we can help advise you to ensure that your medical provider accepts your health insurance.
Also, we can help coordinate situations where you may owe a co-pay or deductible. We have worked hard to help many personal injury clients in this regard.
We can also help to save you on needing to immediately pay co-payments and deductibles.
There are strategies to help delay these payments and use other benefits or agreements so that you are not at financial hardship until your case settles in the future.
Finally, we can actually help negotiate medical bills at your request.
Health and auto insurance companies and medical providers can take advantage of you if you are not careful. Our attorneys can help guide you.
