Question:

If I am injured while on duty, what medical bills are paid for first responders?

Answer:

Paid Medical Bills for First Responders Oftentimes we have clients who receive medical bills following a work-related accident. My first responders are often transported to the hospital or to a medical facility, and the hospital bills their group or private health insurance. In Florida, when you’re injured on duty, medical bills are the responsibility of the insurance carriers and should not be billed through your group health insurance. Medical bills related to the injury and those bills that are reasonably and medically necessary for the treatment of your injuries should be paid by the carrier.

If you are receiving bills either through your group health insurance or from a medical provider, we invite you to call our office so that we can make sure that the insurance company is properly billed and represent you on your claim.
