After a Florida accident, you will want to make sure there is certain information that you give to all of your medical providers to ensure your medical claims are processed properly. This applies to emergency rooms, urgent care centers, chiropractors' offices, physical therapists, doctors' offices, or anyone who provides you accident related medical care.
They will need the name of your insurance company, the policy number, and your claim number if you’ve already called to notify your insurance company. It is important to notify your insurance company immediately after an accident so you can access the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits on your car insurance policy.
In Florida, PIP is primary in every car accident case so they should be paying all of your medical expenses up front. Your health insurance company shouldn’t have to pay for any of these claims, but if they do you will have to reimburse them once you receive a settlement from the at fault party.
