Car Accidents and Medical Bills: Who Will Pay?

If you are involved in a car accident, you hope you won’t sustain any injuries. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Even a minor fender bender could land you in the hospital for treatment.

As a Massachusetts resident, here is something you need to know: you live in a no-fault state. For this reason, your medical bills should be covered regardless of who caused the accident.

At first, your medical bills will be submitted to the insurance provider covering the vehicle you were in when the accident occurred. That provider has a responsibility to pay the first $2,000.

From there, any additional medical bills should be submitted to your health insurance company. If any bill is denied or not paid in full, the remaining balance can be forwarded to the insurance company.

As simple as this can be, it is also extremely confusing. Even if you think you have a grasp, your insurance company and health insurance company could throw you for a curve.

If you can’t seem to find the party responsible for paying your medical bills, let us step in and provide you with guidance. We will make sure each and every bill is paid as required by law.
