Medical specials is a fancy word for your medical bills. In most cases, your bills will be covered by your own health insurance. The problem is if you are not a fault, they want their money back. Medicare and Title 19 coverage have subrogation rights.
Subrogation is another fancy word for “I want my money back.” If you are not at fault and you settle your case for $50,000 and you have $40,000 in subrogation rights, you have problem. Now your attorney receives a subrogation notice and should be in touch with the provider. Your attorney should keep you informed about this issue. Just because you have a big bill, does not mean you are going to get a lot of money. Doctors and Chiropractors are continually challenged by the defense or insurance company. If you have any questions about subrogation, contact me.
