Chiropractic treatment is common following a car accident claim, especially when the person experiences soft-tissue injuries. Chiropractors can be amazing at helping people to get some relief for their pain and manage their injuries.
Often, a chiropractor may not be covered by health insurance or may not take health insurance following a car accident injury. In those cases, bills can add up quickly and knowing how they are going to be paid is very important.
Unfortunately, in a Louisiana car accident claim, the at-fault insurance company is not responsible for paying the chiropractor as you treat. Instead, the insurance company will typically want to resolve your claim once you have finished treating. If you are successful in settling your claim, the chiropractor would be paid with a portion of your settlement funds.
In some cases, an injured victim may have what is called “medical payment or med-pay coverage” with their own auto insurance. Sometimes, a chiropractor will request to be paid from those funds.
