Medical insurance should cover any injuries substained no matter how they were caused.

Health insurance is only responsible (in most cases) for what your car insurance and the third party involved's insurance does not pay. Legally, car insurance is primary over health insurance.

In an auto accident in California do you bill your auto insurance as the primary insurance or your health insurance?

If you have both medical insurance and auto insurance, the primary company billed will depend on the situation. If your injuries and medical costs were caused by an auto accident and you carry Medical Payments coverage, you will bill your auto insurance provider. If you do not carry Med Pay insurance coverage, as it is optional in the state of California, the circumstances will depend on who is deemed at fault for the accident. If the other party is at fault, you will bill their insurance company and will advise your claims adjuster as well. If you are deemed at fault and do not carry Med Pay, the only insurance you can bill is your medical insurance provider. Be sure your medical insurance provider does not exclude injuries caused in an automobile accident before approving chiropractic care.


If no auto insurance will medical insurance pay?

If you have an auto accident and you do not have auto insurance with medical payments coverage for your injuries and medical costs, you may need to research the coverages available through your medical insurance policy. If you are not at fault for the accident that caused you injury, and the third party insurance provider has taken responsibility for the accident, the at fault party's liability insurance should pay for medical injuries up to the limits on their policy. Because you do not have insurance, receiving a claim payout might require more work because you do not have an adjuster working for you. If you were at fault for the accident and you do not have auto insurance, you will need to speak with a representative from your medical insurance company to discuss the coverage provided under that policy. You may have a co-pay or a percentage you are responsible for depending on if you have an HMO or PPO.

Many PIP policies only pay a % of injuries up to a maximum of $10,000.

Whose auto insurance will cover your passenger if they have no auto insurance?

Answer 1: If you are driving with a passenger that does not have auto insurance or medical insurance, they can be covered under either your policy or the third party's policy depending upon the situation. If you are found at fault for the accident, Medical Payments or Personal Injury Protection will pay the a portion of the medical expenses that you and your passengers incur up to the stated limits. If you carry Uninsured Motorist and are hit by someone with no insurance, this coverage will pay for injuries to you and your passengers as well. If you are not at-fault for the accident causing injuries and the other party has insurance, the third party liability insurance coverage will pay for injuries to you and your passengers based on the per person and per accident limits stated on the policy.Answer 2: If the passengers are travelling in your auto and, if you are at fault in an accident, your insurance will cover them. If the other driver is found at fault, his/her liability insurance will cover your passengers.

What kind of car insurance pays for your injuries when you're in an accident in your car?

Three types of auto insurance come to mind: medical payments (or personal injury protection), liability coverage and under/uninsured motorist coverage. Med Pay is coverage that protects the occupants of a car and pays medical bills up to the amount of the med pay policy limits. Liability coverage is the car insurance that pays on behalf of the at-fault driver. This coverage makes a lump sum payment to the injured person who is not at fault. UM coverage is owned by the injured person and pays them in cases where the at-fault driver does not have any insurance or does not have enough liability coverage.

Homeowners insurance is "Property Coverage". Most home insurance policies only have 500 dollars medical coverage for the named insured which covers minor house hold injuries in and around the house.

Medical insurance and property insurance are two very different kinds of insurance.

Does no fault Insurance apply to medical claims only or is the collision damage 'no fault' also?

No fault medical coverage means only that the coverage will pay for an insured's injuries no matter who was at fault for an accident. This is the only coverage in which this 'no fault' terminolgy applies to. The medical coverage names and amounts vary by state. GA, SC, and LA have Medical Payments. FL and MI have Personal Injury Protection. AR has Medical Benefits. They are essentially the same coverage with different amounts, restrictions, etc. but all are considered no-fault coverages. In claims and with all other coverages, liability for damages is determined by who was at fault or who caused the accident.

Does your homeowners insurance cover you if you are injured on someone else's property?

No You would need to seek coverage under your medical insurance policy for accidental injuries. Homeowners insurance is for property and liabilities that may arise out of home ownership. Home insurance does not replace medical insurance. If you think the property owner is liable through cause of injury, you might seek coverage under their liability if they carry the coverage.
