Q If a doctor treated me for work-related injuries, will doctor the doctor bill me?
Medical treatments for work-related injuries do not follow the same medical billing procedure. If you were hurt at work in North Carolina and were treated by a doctor as a result of the work-related injuries, the doctor is not legally allowed to charge you for treatment. Patients who have work-related injuries have their medical bills processed differently.
However, depending on the circumstances of your work injury, there may be a third-party lien placed on the workers' compensation carrier. Learn more about how to avoid and remove liens on personal injury claims.
