Who Will Pay for My Medical Care?
Payment for medical care depends upon the specific situation and the insurance policies available. In car accidents, your insurance company pays your medical bills regardless of who is at fault. In workplace accidents, workers compensation pays your medical bills even if you are at fault. If you are on Medicare or Medicaid, they will pay your bills. If you are injured on someone else’s property, the insurance company may have a limited amount to pay your medical expenses regardless of who is at fault.
In many situations, clients do not have their own insurance to pay for their medical care. An application for Medicaid may be necessary. Many doctors will provide treatment and wait for payment after your case settles.
In some cases, where workers compensation, Medicare, Medicaid, or some other insurance companies pay your bills, they may be entitled to collect the money paid from the proceeds of a settlement of judgment. At Norman M. Block, P.C., we can help determine whether there will be any such right at the end of the case.
