Q: Why would my personal injury attorney request from me, my personal HEALTH insurance data.
Such as provider group info, contact info. I was rear ended, while at stop light.
A: you should have asked you lawyer why.
however, we do it so med calls can be paid by insurance, thus putting more money into the pockets of the client.
A: Because when you are done with all your treatment we have to send off to ALL your medical providers to get your full medical record. We also need to know who paid for your medical services... such as Medicare, Medi-Cal or private insurance because they need to be paid back. As the previous post suggests - your attorney is really the one to explain this all to you.
