Yes. If some of your medical treatment was required because of the negligent care (rather than the underlying medical condition that took you to the healthcare provider in the first place), and if that care was paid for by Medicare, Medicaid or a health insurance company, they will be entitled to repayment. This is known as a lien or subrogation claim. You will only have to repay the medical expenses if you recover compensation. We will include the medical expenses as part of your claim.
We will work with you and your health insurer or Medicare/Medicaid to reach an agreement as to the appropriate amount to be repaid out of any compensation you receive.
