A long time Heritage Health patient was in an auto accident, she came into the office for treatments. She has been using her own health insurance the rest of the year and just figured she would continue to use it. She has a $50 co-pay every visit and would need to be seen for 3 times a week for 8 weeks or more. The patient was very worried about her cost and was thinking she would not get the auto injury treatment she needed. After we explained her that medical pay insurance that she has through her own car insurance, she felt relieved and began treatment.
We come across this problem often, patients do not know all of their options after being invovled in a MVA. Please check with your provider to get all of the facts before living with the results of a Motor Vehicle Accident.
