If they have a Subrogation Clause (Section of Property Insurance and Liability Insurance policies providing an insurer the right to take legal activity against a third party responsible for a loss to an insured for which a claim has been paid) in their contract (and most do). The above response is correct. What this means is you need to take this into consideration when determining on a settlement.

If you have health insurance will your PIP pay for an injury in an auto accident?

Response .
In Florida, PIP will pay 80% of the bills till a total of $Ten,000 is reached. .
After the $Ten,000 limit, the health insurance will kick in as if that was the primary insurance. .
So what about the 20% before the $Ten,000. Send the remaining balance bills to your health insurance or the provider if the provider belongs to the health insurance list. Most of the health insurance companies will pay nothing of the 20% as the auto PIP will have paid several fold the allowable amount that the helath insurance pays had it not been as a result of an auto accident. They will tell the provider that no extra payment is due. So you will not pay a dime from your pocket till you reach the $Ten,000 limit. .
But if you are going to a out-of-network provider, I do not know. So when you go to ER or a doctor, tell them you only want to see your health insurance providers. They may not do so but insist..
Beaware of even network providers attempting to ask you to pay the balance if your health insurance company does not pay anything. They become greedy like anyone else..
The sun is setting on reqd PIP in Florida. It is a boon for people who have a insurance as they will not go thru the hassles that providers put you thru for the balance of the PIP. On PIP, charges are 3-4 times what is permitted by health insurance companies. So hospitals and doctors make a killing. With PIP gone in Fall, now the lawyers will make a killing by suing for injuries. And if you are not insured, you are in trouble even if the accident was not your fault. PIP was a good idea, but when hospitals and doctors got greedy, it became to be known as a scam. .
With our mentality of making money in the brief run, this is what the consumer gets. He is shafted no matter what, just getting shafted by different people. Do you want to be shafted by the medical community or the lawyers. Take your pick.

Will your health insurance cover medical expenses if you are injured in a car accident?

As with anything regarding health insurance, it depends. Generally speaking, in an auto accident the question about medical benefits is secondary to providing the best care for the accident victim. After the emergency has passed is the time for figuring out who pays for the medical expenses. Often health insurance is asked to pay very first. However, health insurance companies have a program called “subrogation” that seeks to ensure that the responsible party pays for their share of expenses. In the case of a car accident, typically the auto insurance will be primary and should pay medical expenses very first. During the process of subrogation the health insurance provider will contact the auto insurance provider and negotiate who should pay the bills.

What does a provision for bodily injury cover in an insurance policy?

It depends on the state in which the policy is written and also if there is an accident, the state in which the accident occurs. Typically however, it covers bodily injury, as defined in the policy section labeled “definitions” to anyone involved in the accident toward whom you might have liability. That liability is defined by the law. The coverage will be limited by exclusions or things not covered as outlined in the policy or endorsements. In other words, generally speaking, it covers the injuries sustained by another party due to something that is either fully or partially your fault. It may or may not provide that same coverage to occupants of your vehicle, members of your household, etc. Whatever it does cover in terms of money, it is to the value of the claim or to the boundaries of the coverage, whichever is less. Never assume that you know what is covered unless you check with someone who knows how to read your policy. It sounds almost condescending but I certainly don’t mean it that way. I have been a claims manager for many years and coverage is one of my specialties. It can be very straightforward or very complicated depending on the situation. Adjusters, supervisors, managers and even attorneys don’t always get it right. In addition, the terminology also has application to uninsured motorist coverage. That is a separate coverage which is intended to provide compensation for you, or occupants of your vehicle, who were injured in a collision with another vehicle that did not have private injury liability coverage. Uninsured motorist coverage often comes in the same amount as the liability insurance that you purchase, but there can sometimes be an option for higher boundaries, lower thresholds, or an option to waive uninsured motorist coverage altogether. If a collision and resulting injuries occur for which uninsured motorist coverage applies, the valuation of the injury is made similarly to that of a third-party claim (that is, one against the other driver’s bodily injury insurer had there been one) This can include a reduction in recovery for any comparative or contributory negligence (depending upon the rule of law followed by the governing state) attributable to the person asserting the claim for damages. Typically, “bodily injury” is afforded the same definition in this context.

The failure to do so can result in the suspension of your license and tags under Financial Responsibility Laws. The nature of liability insurance is such that it pays damages to an guiltless third party to whom you cause injury. In that sense, it protects you from private liability up to the policy boundaries that you have bought. If you are sued as a result of the incident and fault is contested, the insurer also provides you with an attorney to defend you. The insurer pays the attorney’s fees and related court costs (such as, but not limited to, court reporter expenses).

Does health insurance cover bodily injury in an accident?

How are insurance bodily injury claims treated?

This is not a question that lends itself to a brief reaction, here is an outline: 1. After the incident, either the policyholder or the claimant (or his/her/its representative) must report the incident to the insurer. A timely report is usually a condition to coverage under the policy (if coverage is found to exist). Two. The insurer will commence an investigation of the occurrence. This may be done by in-house adjusters, or the insurer may hire outside adjusters to investigate. Trio. Depending upon typr pg occurrence, elements of the investigation will include police reports, photographs, diagrams, witness statements, statements of the insured and as many other people as may have skill of the “who where, when, why, and how” factors. Four. Assuming that the claimant was injured, the adjuster will want to collect medical records of treating practitioners, therapists, and others. These will be assessed for objective and subjective complaints of injury, indicia of preexisting conditions, prescriptions, and other types of medical care and therapy. Five. The adjuster will also need to know how the injury has affected the claimant. Work records, including lost time/income, inability to perform work-related functions, etc. will be significant. The adjuster will also want to know how the injury has affected other aspects of the claimant’s life–participation in activities, etc. Age of the claimant will also be a factor, because (1) a serious, permanent injury will adversely affect a junior person longer; (Two) a less-serious injury to a junior person is likely to heal better; (Three) an injury to an older person will affect the person for a shorter time, but is less likely to readily resolve. 6. The adjuster will need to determine if there is any fault om the claimant. Depending upon the jurisdiction involved, the rule of law may be such that recovery of damages is precluded or diminished depending upon the fault factor (based on “comparative” or “contributory” negligence). 7. Most insurers have ranges within which they lodge claims, based upon the above factors, and others. They also look to jury verdict research to determine what similar injuries are “bringing” when suit is filed and the cases go to trial. For the most part, the objective is to resolve a claim amicably if it is possible to do so. In fact, insurers have the obligation to lodge a claim within policy thresholds (the maximum amount payable as liability benefits) if it is possible to do so, rather than subject the policyholder to suit and to the risk of a verdict against him/her/it that is in excess of policy boundaries. Insurers also consider the expenses that they incur in defending a lawsuit (defense attorney fees and court costs) in making the decision.
