What if I don’t have insurance to cover my bills?
Some providers may agree to hold your bill while you’re being treated for your injuries. Sometimes they require a written guarantee that their bills will be paid out of your settlement proceeds at the end of your case. Not all providers will agree to hold your bills. In those instances, you should pay the providers directly or make payment arrangements so that you can continue to get the care you need. If you aren’t improving with the recommended treatment, discuss this with your provider before making any changes to your treatment plan on your own. By discussing changes in care with your providers, you might protect yourself from insurance companies that claim that you weren’t trying hard to get better, or that you’ve recovered from your injuries when, in fact, you haven’t.
