A: An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. For the purposes of showing damages in a bodily injury claim, I would present the full bill. It would have the line-by-line procedures. However, I would also disclose reimbursements that were enjoyed through no-fault, workers' comp, state plans, private plans, or other sources. For purposes of requesting reimbursements on medical services paid out-of-pocket or covered by liens, I would present only the amounts not covered by insurance. But these are only generalities. An Ohio attorney, or your attorney (if you are represented), could advise more meaningfully under applicable state laws. Good luck
