If I Settle or win my Claim, do I Have to Repay my Health Insurance Company?

Medical reimbursement is a huge issue in personal injury claims. Yes, health insurers typically have certain rights related to repayment. These repayment rights can be complex and vary depending upon whether you have private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, VA benefits, Tricare, or some other form of health coverage. Different legal rules and procedures can apply to each.

This is an area where you really need a skilled attorney who can best navigate the system. A skilled attorney can often save tremendous money for his or her clients on this issue. Unfortunately, too many lawyers (especially the settlement mill attorneys who populate television and billboards) do not fight for their clients on this issue.
