Insurance coverage issues can be confusing. When there is potentially more than one insurance company involved, things sometimes can become mind-boggling. Last week, I met with a delivery driver who was injured in a motor vehicle accident while working. He said someone told him that his employers’ workers’ compensation carrier should be paying for his accident-related medical bills. Then he said his employers’ workers’ compensation carrier told him that his personal auto insurance carrier is responsible for paying his medical bills.
In Pennsylvania, if you are injured while working and you are an employee, your employers’ workers’ compensation carrier is responsible to pay your accident-related medical bills. However, sometimes a dispute arises as to whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. If the worker is an independent contractor, his personal auto insurance carrier would be responsible for paying his medical bills upto his policy’s limits. Once those limits become exhausted, the worker would then need to submit his medical bills to his private health insurance carrier for payment.
