The primary insurance carrier who pays your medical bills after an accident is your own auto insurance carrier. Your own insurance pays for the first ten thousand dollars of medical bills. Your health insurance carrier pays after your PIP carrier paid the $10,000 of payments to your doctors. The health insurance carrier has lien rights. This means the health insurance carrier has the legal right to recover money back from your accident settlement. This is especially important to know if you have Medicare or Medicaid, because failing to pay these carriers back can jeopardize receiving additional benefits.
