Navigating Medical Bills After an Auto Collision: Ensuring Fair Treatment and Compensation

Medical Bills

Shane Smith here.

If you’re ever injured in an auto collision through no fault of your own, I hope you get the medical care you need as quickly as possible. Proper treatment for injuries, big or small, sustained in a car accident should always be your top priority, because even seemingly small injuries to your neck, back and other areas of your body can morph into life altering disabilities if left untreated.

Once you’ve been seen by a medical specialist, and once your treatment and rehabilitation has concluded and it’s time to pay the bill, I urge you to pause and look things over carefully-- better yet, make sure you have an experienced personal injury attorney checking the bills and making sure you are not being grossly overcharged for medical services.

When you review your bill, make sure it’s clear what you’re being charged for. Check for duplicate charges and charges for services you never received (this happens more often than you may think).

If you find mistakes on your medical bills, you need to discuss this with your health care provider. Better still, have an experienced personal injury attorney negotiate these concerns for you. You may be asked to provide evidence in support of your claim such as receipts, doctors notes or insurance policy documents.

If you have your own health insurance, it may be beneficial to submit these bills to your own private insurance. Health insurance companies have negotiated rates with healthcare providers. This can lower any out-of-pocket costs in the long run. Submitting medical bills to your own health insurance provider may or may not be the right move in your personal injury claim. To know for sure, talk with the right personal injury law firm.
