Health Insurance against a settled claim

Submitted by GerryTub on Sun, 12/29/2019 - 02:30

I changed employers and insurance providers six months after an auto accident. While employed at the new job I used my current provided health insurance to have a surgery to correct a damaged disk that the dr say was caused by the car accident.

The new insurance provider is attempting subrogation against the third party auto insurance provider , but the auto insurance provider is stating that they settled the case around that accident.

If my current provider is unable to perform a successful subrogation, because of a settlement what happens to the medical claim? Does an unsuccessful subrogation result in my claims being denied by my health insurance provider leaving me to pay the cost of the surgery out of pocket or would subrogation agent ask to recoup the funds of the settlement in order to continue processing my claim?
