Many folks get a bit upset when they are told they need to pay the insurance company back if they are awarded money for medical expenses. We get it…insurance companies are rich and you were the injured one…doesn’t make a lot of sense! But think about this: if you were in an auto accident, went for medical treatment, and your insurance paid the bill in full then your insurance company should really be the one that is reimbursed.
But here’s the good news! Insurance companies are often willing to negotiate the amount you pay back. So instead of paying the insurance company 100%, you may be able to repay a lesser percentage. Of course every situation is different and every insurance company is different.
