When seeking medical care after an accident, many people are surprised to learn that in certain situations, healthcare providers can assert a claim against the personal injury settlement. This allows payment for services to come directly from the funds from the settlement, and not out-of-pocket or from insurance. Colorado Injury Center is dedicated to helping our patients, and we work on a lien basis in many cases to ensure no direct to you.
We are very proficient in working with insurance to ensure that any claims are handled smoothly, and if you are represented by an attorney, we will work with them to make absolute certain that your case is handled legally and medically in the best possible manner.
Some medical providers may ask you to sign a lien letter, stating that a lien has been submitted against your settlement to pay for services. These liens must must follow strict protocols in order to be valid.
After a traumatic incident, the last thing you need to be concerned with is money. Let us alleviate that concern. In most every case, Colorado Injury Center will work on a lien, leaving you to focus on making a full recovery in the meantime.
The types of liens we accept are medical bill related. These all come out of the sum of the money from your personal injury lawsuit. Basically, a medical lien ensures that we, as a medical provider, are compensated for our services. While most often, the patient cannot cover the full cost incurred by an accident, a personal injury suit can yield varying sums of cash for the victim to use to seek aid. A medical lien is paid directly from that sum.
