Medical bills are certainly just one of the negative aspects of being involved in a serious car accident in San Diego, but even with health insurance these can influence you for years to come.
Many people who make it through a car accident feel as if their life has been punctuated before and after the accident. So many things chance in the aftermath of an accident that it can be difficult to figure out how to move on, even if your health insurance has stepped in to pay the bulk of the medical bills.
In a recent poll, 26 percent of Americans indicate that medical bills have taken a major toll on their family’s financial situation. Even minor changes in company-sponsored plans can have a big impact on your financial situation, particularly if the deductible or co-pays are going up. A recent research study by Kaiser found that companies are now shifting the burden of health care costs over to employees.
Make sure to analyze your health insurance plan on an annual basis so that you are aware of big and small changes that could influence you. It only takes one major medical issue like a car accident to lead to costly medical bills, even if your insurance is relatively supportive.
