Your Chester injury attorney will discuss the payment of your medical bills in detail. Many options are available, depending on your case, including your own health insurance and coverage by other plans.
Insurance Plans in Many Forms
Here are some common payment methods:
- Coverage may be available from your own health insurance, such as the plan offered in your employee benefits package.
- Coverage may also be available through private policies that you pay for directly.
- You may be covered under your spouse’s policy, or if you are a minor, under your parents’ policy.
- Other types of insurance that cover medical bills include automobile policies. If you were driving your own vehicle at the time of injury, your auto insurance may kick in. On the other hand, if you were an injured as a passenger, the driver’s auto insurance may be primary.
- In addition to health and car insurance, employer’s workers’ compensation insurance may cover you if the injury suffered was work-related or occurred at the location of employment.
- What about liability coverage? Let’s say that someone else caused your injury. In this case, the other party’s insurance may apply, although a settlement may be required for this coverage.
- You may also have the resources to pay out-of-pocket for medical care.
Regardless of your coverage, be sure to save all of your bills. Your Chester injury attorney will need them to work on your claim or case.
