What is a medical lien?
July 23rd, 2020
By Omid Rejali Esq.
A medical lien is a contract.
Many times we have clients who either do not have health insurance; don't have the best health insurance or for a variety of other reasons do not want to use their own health insurance when they are involved in a San Diego car accident.
When faced with situations such as the ones mentioned we can provide our clients with options to treat with the best health care providers without having to pay any money upfront. These doctors are willing to treat the client, but will have a lien on the case.
What that means is that, once the case is settled either through mediation (I will discuss this in a different blog) or trial, the doctors will then collect their fee for the services they have provided.
So, there it is. A lien put simply is nothing more than a contract between you and the health care provider who has cared for you to be able to get paid for the services rendered at some time in the future.
Hope this information helps you.
