Usually Yes, and You Should Have Your Doctors Bill Your Health Insurance First.
Health insurance companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, Medicare, and Aetna, will often pay for treatment related to your accident. Other insurance plans, or “co-ops” may not. Private health insurance companies are not always required to pay for treatment after an accident, although most choose to pay anyway. If your health insurance does pay for treatment, then they have a right to be repaid out of the settlement. Our firm can negotiate with your health insurance company to reduce the amount owed from your settlement, leaving more money in your pocket.
