“I’ve been involved in a Texas car crash and I’m not sure what to do about my medical bills, who’s responsible for paying the hospital and the doctors?”
Hi. I’m Brad Parker, the attorney you want but hope you never need and this is Bar Talk. Come on in for about sixty seconds and I’ll tell you more about what the answer to this question is. The short answer is you’re responsible for those medical bills. While it’s true that the insurance company will probably ultimately be on the hook, it could take weeks months even years for a final settlement to get it made and until then the insurance company’s not going to pay anything.
They’ll pay just one lump sum at the end of the settlement process therefore it’s extremely important that you give the hospital and your doctors your health insurance information so that they can build your health insurance. They’ll be reimbursed once the case is resolved but until then you’ve got to get these bills paid. You don’t want to have a chance of ruining your credit or having them report you. So always make sure to give your health insurance information to your medical care providers and get those bills paid. Thanks.
