Health Insurance

In exchange for the payment of premiums, a health insurer, subject to many conditions and caveats, pays for expenses related to health care.  One of those conditions or caveats is sometimes a health insurer not paying for work injuries.  Why?  Because someone else, the workers' compensation insurer will pay for it.  This often presents a problem is employer liability is contested.  Ask your workers' comp lawyer for advice or assistance on this issue.
