If you’re charged for medical care when you’re sick, you’re entitled to recover the costs.
But you have to do it in the form of an upfront payment or an overpayment.
And if you’re injured and require a hospital stay, you might also have to pay for it.
Here are the rules for how you recover the cost of medical care.
Medical care groupItasca Medical Care Group, which operates six medical care facilities in Hampton, is a medical aid group that provides medical assistance to injured workers and their families.
The group offers financial aid and other financial assistance to help workers recover the money that has been charged to them.
Itasca Medical Center charges the maximum amount of $10 per worker for medical assistance.
The amount you can recover depends on how many days you were in the hospital and the type of treatment you received.
The maximum recovery for a person who was hospitalized for 3 days or less is $1,000.
The recovery amount varies depending on the type and severity of your injury and whether you were hospitalized for more than 2 days.
The maximum recovery is $5,000 for a patient who was in the ICU for 3 to 7 days and $10,000 if you were hospitalized for more that 7 days.
You can recover the amount of the overpayment if you received more than $10 in medical services during the hospital stay.
Medical aid group overpaymentMedical aid groups can overpay medical aid groups to pay back overpayments.
If you owe overpayment fees, your doctor may be able to recover overpaymeas and charges from you.
You may be entitled to recovery if the overpay was incurred within 1 year of the accident or within 1 week of the injury.
If the overcharge was incurred after the accident, you may be eligible for up to $5 million in recovery.
You can recover up to 50 percent of the amount overpaymed to you if you are insured and the charge was for your medical services.
Medical treatment facilityThe medical aid organization will typically charge overpayment fees to help you pay medical bills.
You’re entitled for up the amount you owe.
The overpayment fee is calculated by the hospital’s insurance provider, and you must pay the fee within 2 business days of being charged.
If your insurer does not provide medical bills, your recovery may be limited to up to 5 percent of your medical expenses.
Medical center overpaymentIf you’re an injured worker, you can also recover your medical bills if your medical care facility overpaid you for medical services at a hospital.
The amount you’re able to get back is determined by the amount charged to the medical aid organizations, which vary.
The total amount you are able to collect is the amount that you paid.
If it was overpaid by more than the amount it was charged, you could receive a larger amount of recovery money.
The recovery amount you receive is the maximum that you can claim on your medical bill.
If a medical treatment facility overcharged you for treatment, you have the right to seek a jury verdict in your favor.
Medical assistance group overchargeThe medical assistance group charged overpayment to help pay your medical treatment fees is usually the one who overcharged the medical group, not the medical organization that charged the overcharges.
You are not entitled to a jury judgment or punitive damages.
The medical groups that you are eligible for recovery from can vary from one hospital to another.
If one medical group overcharged another, you should contact the medical assistance organization that is responsible for the overcharging.
If that group overpaid the medical care fees for you, you would be eligible to receive a higher amount of money.
