How is health insurance reimbursed from my settlement?
Our goal for each and every client is to maximize the amount put in his or her pocket. Obviously, we must pay for medical expenses incurred as a result of treatment for injuries out of any recovery. However, in the last 5 to 10 years we have seen an explosion in the number of health insurance companies seeking reimbursement from the settlement for medical expenses paid for injuries resulting from the negligence of another party. Whether your health insurance company can obtain reimbursement from your settlement may depend upon the type of policy you have and whether you or your employer provided it and paid for the premiums.
