Douglas J. Olcott: In Pennsylvania, if you've been injured in an automobile accident, there are two different sources of recovery to pay for your medical treatment. In the first instance, under your automobile insurance policy, you have what's known as first party medical benefits. Regardless of fault, you're still going to get your medical coverage and your medical bills paid for through your automobile insurance. Now, depending on how much you elected will determine how much coverage there is under your automobile policy. Once you've exhausted the amount of coverage under your automobile policy, you then look to any private health insurance you may have, whether that's private health insurance provided to you through your work, or if you are on one of the state plans, that would provide you a second layer of coverage to make sure that you can get the treatment you need, get back to health, and hopefully become a productive member of society again.
