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 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.
I think you are referring to PIP coverage? There may be some states that surcharge if you do not have medical insurance as PIP pays for injuries, or death in an auto accident. Most states and insurance companies offer a discount if you do have medical insurance as your medical insurance can also pay for your injuries. Many PIP policies only pay a % of injuries up to a maximum of $10,000.
If you put medical insurance on the policy when the policy was purchased.
Usually your own 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.
Ok, Personal Injury Protection, (PIP), is the name of the coverage which pays for your injuries after a car accident, it is something we sign up for when we start our car insurance policies. In order to figure out if you have Personal Injury Protection, start with a call to your insurance company. They can tell you in this first call if you have medical coverage for your injuries.
Medical bills for yourself and anyone else in your car in case of an accident
The only coverage on an auto policy that covers costs for you and your passengers medical expenses is Med Pay Coverage. You health insurance will also pay for injuries. Med Pay is an optional coverage but will pay for an accident involving an automobile even when not in your car.
If your motorcycle was a scheduled vehicle on your Insurance Policy then you should be covered. If you were on someone Else's Motorcycle then their insurance policy should cover your medical. If neither coverage is available then you could look to your major medical policy or HMO for medical coverage.
Liability and medical insurance.
If you have a health insurance policy (Medical Insurance) it will pick up where your auto coverage left off.
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.
Medical bills for yourself and anyone else in the car in the case of an accident- apex
The insurance should cover an accident while it was in force. If you had insurance 2 months ago and the accident happened 2 months ago, coverages should apply. If the accident happened today and the coverage stopped 2 months ago, there should not be coverage.
The insurers of the driver who was deemed to be at fault for the accident.
No, The medical coverage portion of your policy (usually $500) is for minor injuries that can occur around the home and is specific to the named insureds. Your home insurance policy is not a replacement for major medical insurance. If your guest feels you are responsible for their injuries through your negligence then they could sue you for coverage under the liability portion of your home insurance policy.
There is no exclusion for dental. The question is just as simple as if there is coverage for medical or not. Remember, the standard insurance policy only pays for damage to the other party. So if you are at fault in an accident, there is little or no coverage for you your own injuries, dental or otherwise.
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. Some home insurance policies have no medical coverage at all since it's "property insurance". Your home insurance policy does not and can not replace your major medical or health insurance policy. Medical insurance and property insurance are two very different kinds of insurance.
Collision insurance will cover the damages to your vehicle- no matter who is at fault. Uninsured coverage is used if the other vehicle is at fault for the accident and you and/or anyone in your car is injured. This coverage will typically pay for related medical bills, loss wages, and general damages (i.e pain and suffering). Liability = Other vehicle damage Injuries to driver/passenger in other vehicle Injuries to passengers in your vehicle if you are at fault Collision/Comprehensive = Cover damages to your car Uninsured/Under-insured = Injuries to you or your passengers when another vehicle is at fault and does not have insurance or has minimum coverage
In auto insurance, personal injury protection coverage is the same as medical coverage.
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.
The un-insured driver will have to turn to their health insurance company for coverage if he carried no auto insurance.
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.
