Subrogation

Subrogation is the right of an insurance company or medical provider to be repaid for the treatment it paid for or provided to you. When you receive money for your injury claim, your health insurance company and medical providers are often entitled to payment out of the money the injured party receives. If you do not repay your insurance company or medical providers you could be held accountable and sued for payment. What you are not told is you are often entitled to a discount on the amount owed if you hire an attorney or certain circumstances exist.
