Can a Chiropractor refuse to file a patients Medical Insurance for an Auto Accident?
There isn't a simple answer to this question. It depends on who is responsible and state laws. Who is responsible (the auto insurance or the medical insurance) can depend on state requirements as well as who is liable for the accident. Although we have some general guidelines which begin on page 40 of the 2019 ChiroCode DeskBook, it is best to consult with your state association who will be familiar with the specific laws in your state. If there is already an attorney handling the case, consult with them as they will know the specific laws of your state (or the state of the accident) which may apply.
