Subrogation & Your Personal Injury Claim

Posted on Jun 22, 2017

The Supreme Court case on subrogation we reported on a few months ago (Coventry Health Care of Missouri, Inc. v. Nevilswas reversed and remanded 8-0. The Court ruled that the federal law allowing subrogation for federal health plans pre-empts state laws that do not allow it (Virginia is one of those states with an anti-subrogation law).  

What that means is that federal health care plans can require you to reimburse them for any amount they have spent on your medical care if you are hurt in an accident and recover a settlement from the person or company who caused your injuries.
