Finding a Pharmacy that Works with Your Personal Injury Attorney
When you have been injured in an accident and are working with a personal injury attorney, you need prompt medical care, including access to any medications prescribed by your doctor or other healthcare provider.
Unfortunately, auto insurance companies are not likely to accept responsibilities for your medical care unless there is a settlement, or they lose their case and are forced to pay by the court. They expect you to cover any medical costs, including the cost of any medications you have related to the accident out of pocket, even if the case takes months to settle.
After an accident though, you may not have the resources to pay for your medications, especially if you are not able to work (or even get to a pharmacy). The problem is, that medical providers, including pharmacies, are often reluctant to provide you with medical care or fill your prescriptions without being paid upfront.
All of which can leave you caught in the middle. You are in pain, with nowhere to turn to help you get the medical care you need while you wait for the legal wrangling to be completed.
If you do not seek care, the insurance companies can claim that you were not that seriously injured, or you would have been seen by doctors.
We accept letters of protection (LOPs) as well as worker’s compensation claims. [link to our workers compensation blog or our webpage for worker’s comp] We don’t make you wait for your medications or expect you to pay up front for medications related to your auto accident or workers’ compensation claim.
How it Works
Once a personal injury attorney has accepted your case, they will often write what is known as an LOP, or letter of protection. A form of promissory payment, it is basically a request for credit. A LOP allows you to see a seek medical attention while you wait for the legal matters to be worked out.
Typically, a letter of protection states that if the case is settled, or the court rules in your favor, the pharmacy and or medical providers will be paid out of that money. If, on the other hand, the case is dismissed, or you do not win your case in court, then you become responsible to pay for any services that have been rendered.
Additionally, a LOP can help to protect your credit, delaying any collection process for medically related services until any pending legal actions have been finalized. (The case is settled, dropped, dismissed, or you have won or lost your case in court.) Your personal injury attorney can explain the legal details of how the LOP process works.
