Paying for necessary medical treatment you need following a car accident can be a complicated process. If you’ve recently been in an auto accident in Virginia Beach or at anywhere else in the Hampton Roads, you need to understand the role your health insurance may play in paying for your treatment and care.
When you are in a car accident, the medical bills incurred are a part of the damages you are entitled to in your case. You should always use available health insurance to pay for the bills before any personal injury settlement. The reason for this is so you don’t have to use your settlement money to pay for the medical bills.
Your health insurance should always be filed to pay for medical bills. If you have medical expense coverage under your auto insurance policy, you should be collecting that as well. Finally, submit all bills to Medicare or Medicaid to pay for bills incurred as a result of a car accident. You will receive a larger settlement if the medical bills have already been paid.
