Medical Bills Lawyer Trenton
When you are in a Car Accident in the State of New Jersey, the question of who is going to pay your medical bills is always a major concern for an injured victim. The laws governing medical bills in New Jersey are based on No-Fault principals. This means if you own a vehicle required to be registered in New Jersey, then you must have medical payments as part of the policy. Your policy covers you regardless of who was at fault in an accident, or which car you are operating or occupying. Many victims of car accidents believe that the medical bills will be paid for by the at-fault driver. This is not the case in states like New Jersey or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In New Jersey, the bills are paid for by your own insurance. In New Jersey, you have the option of electing many different levels of coverage for medical bills. They range from $250,000.00 less a $1,200.00 deductible to a “Dollar a Day” policy. This office recommends that you never get the “Dollar a Day” policy.
At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our Personal Injury Attorneys and staff can assist you from the start with payment of your medical bills. Many times, when you visit your first doctor or hospital, they do not have any insurance information like the claim number or other critical information. Many times, they will bill your private health insurance first. This is important, because while your health insurance may receive the claim, they will most likely deny you the coverage, because your auto insurance will be the primary responsible party. In New Jersey, one can adopt a policy that leaves medical payments to your Private Health Insurance (PHI). It is a mistake to obtain this coverage, because you do not have the unfettered right to seek certain treatment and with other treatments, like physical therapy. In the case of repetitive treatments, most people are capitated to a limited number of treatments. You do not need to be fighting for your coverage through Private Health Insurance. We recommend that you obtain medical coverage through your automobile insurance so that you do have the ability to treat with whomever you want, for as long as you are required to get the therapy.
