Is My Health Insurance Company Entitled to A Portion of My Settlement?

Attorney Russel Bopp: Hi my name is Russell Bopp. I’m one of the attorneys here at Marcus and Mack, and one of the most common questions that we get from clients or potential clients is: Is my insurance company entitled to a portion of my settlements?

The short answer is that, under the Pennsylvania motor vehicle financial responsibility law, there are certain insurance policies and plans that are entitled to what’s called subrogation or reimbursement from a settlement. That’s why it’s extremely important for them to speak with an attorney to determine what kind of plan that they have and whether that plan is entitled to reimbursement.

Here at Marcus and Mack we make sure that we read all policies and we determine whether that—whether their health insurance policy is entitled to subrogation.

If they have any questions, feel free to reach out to Marcus and Mack at our office or online.
