Who pays my medical bills after an accident?
If someone else caused the accident, the negligent party and their insurance company may be responsible for paying the medical bills, provided they have insurance coverage or sufficient funds.
- In the meantime, the first source to turn to for partial payment of medical bills is usually your own health insurance, whether it's private or public (e.g., Medicare or Medicaid).
- In some cases, there may be additional coverage options such as Med Pay or PIP, depending on the state and the type of insurance policy.
- Consulting an experienced accident or injury attorney is essential to explore all potential sources of recovery for medical bills, as they can become costly, especially if there's a loss of income due to the injuries.
