WHAT DO I DO IF I DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE BUT I WAS HURT IN A CAR ACCIDENT?
If you have been hurt in a car accident but you do not have health insurance, you are probably worried about how you are going to pay for your medical expenses and if you will be able to get the medical care that you need. If you have health insurance, use it to pay for your medical treatment following after a car wreck. Some people do not want to make a claim against their health insurance following a car wreck because they are concerned that their premiums will be affected by the claim. Do not fall into this trap. Use the health insurance benefits that you have paid for. Generally speaking, you will benefit more from having your medical treatment expenses paid for by health insurance than by any other source. However, if you do not have health insurance available to pay for your treatment, you need to know about other alternative means of paying for medical care.
HOW DO I PAY FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT AFTER A CAR WRECK WHEN I DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE?
• Treatment on a lien is the most common means of a doctor treating a patient when the patient does not have health insurance. Treatment on a lien involves an agreement being executed by you, the doctor, and your lawyer for payment to be made to the doctor upon the conclusion of the case.
• Medical care funding sources are the other primary source of paying for medical treatment after an accident when you do not have health insurance. Generally, funding sources are relied upon in cases with exceptionally expensive medical care and they involve high rates of interest for the funding.
