Time for a Safecare Docs Orlando visit? You’ve been in a car accident and the high cost of medical care has you worried about seeing a doctor. When it comes to your own health and well being, you shouldn’t hesitate. If you’ve been in an automobile accident, being examined by a doctor is vital, and living in the state of Florida, you have the ability to pay for your care with your PIP policy.
Personal Injury Protection Insurance is mandatory if you live in Florida, and it requires that you have at least $10,000 in medical coverage which will usually cover your auto injuries. PIP is an extension of your automobile insurance that covers medical expenses caused by an auto accident and in most cases, lost wages and transportation to medical appointments as well. It’s considered “no fault” insurance which means it will pay your medical expenses no matter who was at fault in the accident.
The state of Florida also requires that if you’ve been in an automobile accident, you must see a physician within 14 days of your accident or you will lose your eligibility to file a claim. Your benefits only cover injuries from the accident, so it’s critical that you see a doctor within that 2-week window.
If you call SafeCare Docs Orlando, we can usually get you in to be examined by a physician the same day that you call because we know that time is so important and we would hate to see you lose your benefits because we were busy.
At SafeCare Docs Orlando, our doctors are specialists in the detection and treatment of the soft tissue injuries that often occur when you’ve been in an accident. Some of these injuries include whiplash, herniated discs, knee or shoulder injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is more common with car accident victims than you might think. These types of injuries are often “hidden” and their symptoms may take days, weeks, or even months to surface, which can be problematic if you only have 14 days to see a doctor. This is why it’s crucial that you see a doctor who is specially trained to detect hidden injuries, even if you think you’re unharmed. If these injuries are left undetected, not only will you lose the ability to file a claim, but if they are left untreated, they could cause long-term or permanent damage and pain which will be much costlier to treat.
So if you’ve been in an auto accident, you shouldn’t be worried about the cost of seeing a physician because the costs should be covered by PIP. There’s a much higher cost for not seeing a doctor right away.
