In Florida, when you go to the doctor after an accident, typically, your own automobile insurance company will pay first and then your health insurance company. If you’re awarded damages, you will have to reimburse your medical insurance company to the extent that they have paid for your medical bills. This amount is typically determined by the amount they’ve actually paid the doctor, not the amount that the doctor billed. In some instances, these amounts can be negotiated down. It’s important to seek legal advice to fully understand your rights when it comes to reimbursement of medical insurance payments.
