Understanding Your Medical Lien

Video Transcript

Will I have to pay back health insurance for the medical bills they paid for me related to my personal injury claim?

The answer is yes, in the state of Maryland, if your health insurance company is paying for your medical bills or your medical treatment from a motor vehicle accident and you bring a personal injury claim, your health insurance company is allowed to assert a medical lien against you.

What does this mean? If you settle your motor vehicle accident personal injury case, your health insurance company will be allowed to ask and require you to pay them back a certain amount for any amount that they actually paid out as it relates to your personal injury claim. When you have an experienced personal injury lawyer representing you in a personal injury motor vehicle accident case, you can be rest assured that your attorney will be negotiating with your health insurance company to try to drive down the amount as far as possible regarding how much you will have to pay your health insurance company back for your medical bills.
