Paying Your Medical Bills
After an auto accident, your first concern may be getting medical treatment for your injuries. But those treatments also can mean expensive medical bills that you might not be able to afford without the help of your insurance. At William Mattar Law Offices, we realize this can be a difficult time for you, and we want to help you understand your insurance claim.

No-Fault Insurance Tips
If you have No-Fault insurance, you may be able to receive financial assistance for your medical bills—but following these few important steps may help you get the benefits you need:
- Inform your medical provider about your No-Fault insurance.
Tell your medical provider if it’s a motor vehicle accident and your No-Fault insurance may apply. Give them your claim number, as well as the name, address, and phone number of your insurance company.
- Don’t pay any bills that are sent to you.
The hospital may send a medical bill to you instead of your insurance company. If you receive a bill, don’t pay it. Instead, mail it to your insurance provider with a cover letter indicating your name, date of your accident, and claim number.
- Keep receipts of all your medical expenses.
Your treatment may require many out-of-pocket costs for expenses such as prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and certain medical devices. To help you receive compensation for these expenses, submit all receipts and a cover letter to your insurance provider.
