This article concerns patients who have been injured in auto accidents. As mentioned in the previous article, many policies have Med-Pay coverage. This coverage pays dollar-for-dollar billed. Here is how you find it.
If a patient has been injured or has aggravated a pre existing condition as the result of a auto accident, Med-Pay coverage will pay. In your financial responsibility questionnaire add these questions:
- Were you injured in an automobile accident?
- Do you have automobile insurance? (This insurance may pay for your medical bills and you will not have to pay copays.)
- What is the name of the company?
- Who is the adjuster?
- What is your claim number?
- Can you please provide the office with your declarations page?
Then, you should add the following queries: Do you have resident relatives who have automobile insurance? Repeat the previous questions. Were you riding in a car with another person who had automobile insurance? Repeat the questions.
Once you have this information, contact the adjuster or insurance company and confirm if they have Med-Pay coverage. If they do, have the company email their form to you and submit your bills and records. They have 30 days to pay, and if they don’t pay, we will help. Our Augusta car accident lawyers love to catch them.
It’s much easier to get paid under this coverage versus Medicare, Medicaid, or Medical Insurance. The bonus is you get paid 100% of the bill. Chiropractors make a killing off this coverage. Don’t ignore it.
