As personal injury attorneys, our job is to give you as many options as possible for your case, and this includes medical treatment and billing options. For instance, did you know that your car insurance policy may include medical bills for any injuries sustained in a car accident, regardless of who was at fault? That’s right, even without health care, you and your family can be covered in the event a car crash.
These medical payments (known as Med-Pay coverage) can be used to pay for treatment that may not be covered by some general health insurance companies, such as chiropractic care or even acupuncture. Medical payments are also available if you were a passenger in another person’s car or truck during a crash.
Is Med Pay a Loan?
While your own car insurance company may pay medical payments on your behalf, you may need to reimburse them. Our personal injury attorneys may be able help you in this situation. According to California law, you may not necessarily have to reimburse an insurance company for Med-Pay if you did not receive enough settlement money. Should there be a reimbursement, however, we can reach a settlement that limits the amount of money paid to your insurance company. In most cases, that savings is passed to you.
