Health Insurance and Subrogation

We all know how expensive the cost of medical care can be.  If you have suffered injuries in an automobile accident that was caused by a negligent driver, your bills could be astronomically high. If you have health insurance, it will likely kick in and pay for all or some of those bills.  If you then file an injury claim against the person who caused the accident and you ultimately receive a settlement, part of the settlement money is for payment for your medical bills.  At that point, if your health insurance has already issued payment for those same bills, they are going to want some of that money back.  This process is what is known as subrogation.
