What if I get into a car accident & don't have health insurance?
If you are involved in a car accident without any health insurance, there is no need to panic when you're seeking medical care in this situation. It's crucial to seek medical attention immediately with a Chiropractor or MD for evaluation and medical diagnosis. If you seek an attorney to handle your case, they can guide you with physicians who accept patients on a lien basis or you can do some online research to find some of your own.
What is a medical lien?
In short, a lien is something that ensures an individual, group, or business is compensated for services provided to someone else. What is a Medical Lien? Medical Liens are created to specifically provide individuals with appropriate treatment with no out of pocket cost after an accident.
Do I need an attorney?
It’s up to you. If you’re not sure, the doctor’s office has a legal right to provide you with 3 Attorney’s contact information for you to explore that option and clear up any concerns you might have with the Attorney directly. A Medical Lien deals with the physician directly and a LOP is made with the Attorney. Both options will provide payment options for the accident treatment except when dealing with an attorney, the medical care is paid for once the case has settled at a rate determined by the attorney and physician.
