Medical expenses – A Michigan No-Fault insurance benefit
An attorney explains that an injured car accident victim’s medical costs can be covered with this benefit
The medical expense provision of the No-Fault act guarantees reimbursement for medical expenses you incur as a result of injuries you suffered in your car accident.
If you have “full benefits,” then your No-Fault auto insurance company will pay for your accident-related medical expenses – even if you have health insurance.
However, if you have “coordinated coverage,” then your health insurance company will pay first on your accident-related expenses. Then, once your health insurance coverage is exhausted or it is determined that your health insurer does not cover certain, necessary treatments, procedures or care, the responsibility for paying your accident-related medical expenses will shift to your No-Fault auto insurance company.
Importantly, the No-Fault medical expense provision will also reimburse you for transportation expenses such as the mileage costs for going to see the doctor and/or to receive other medical treatment and care.
