Motor Vehicle Policy
At Community Rehab, we will first bill your Motor Vehicle insurance company. If med-pay is available, we will draw payment from that source. If med-pay is not available or if it has been exhausted, we will file your claim with your health insurance carrier(s) and any reimbursement from the responsible party will occur between that party and your health insurance company. If no health insurance benefits are available, you, the patient, will be responsible for making at least a partial payment for services at the time they are rendered. (Payment Plans are available.) In this case, you will be provided with receipts for payment and any reimbursement from the responsible party will be made to you. As most motor vehicle accidents are not settled in a timely manner, Community Rehab, takes this course of action to insure reimbursement for services provided. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us, ask our front office personnel, or ask your therapist.
