How Do I Pay My Medical Bills After a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle accidents often cause serious injuries. These injuries can lead to expensive medical bills. If the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, you deserve compensation for your injuries. Denver motorcycle accident lawyer Brian Pushchak is dedicated to ensuring you receive all the compensation you’re entitled to under the law. This will include money to pay for medical expenses for injuries sustained in the accident.
Unfortunately, it can take time to get compensation after a motorcycle accident. In the meantime, you will have to figure out ways to pay your medical bills.
Your Health Insurance
One of the first places you’ll look to help pay medical bills related to your motorcycle accident is your own health insurance. Use your health insurance any time you get treatment. This can reduce the initial cost of your treatment to just your deductible, any copays, and ongoing coinsurance.
Using your health insurance can also buy you time. It takes time for the doctor to bill the insurance company and the insurance company to make a decision on the claim. Even if your insurance company ultimately denies the claim, this helps slow the buildup of expenses related to your motorcycle accident.
Note that when you do get payment for your accident, your health insurance will want to be paid for their costs related to your treatment.
Your Med Pay Insurance
Med Pay insurance is a provision of your automotive and/or motorcycle insurance that pays for your injuries in the event of an accident. All Colorado motor vehicle insurance policies must include Med Pay unless you request its removal in writing. The minimum amount for Med Pay is $5,000 per person, but you might have bought more. Med Pay insurance does not have a deductible.
Since Med Pay is designed to cover your injuries, you don’t have to reimburse Med Pay after your settlement.
How a Lawyer Can Help You Pay Your Medical Bills
Although your insurance plays a critical role in paying your medical bills after your motorcycle accident, having a lawyer on your side can also help. A lawyer can:
- Help you understand your benefits
- Recommend a strategy for which bills to submit where and when
- Encourage providers to wait for payment
- Negotiate reduced payment to insurers
In addition to helping you get more compensation following your accident, a lawyer can help you keep more of that money while ensuring that all your bills are paid and none are sent to collections.
