Funding Information and Resources
Worker’s compensation insurance is insurance provided by an employer. If an individual is injured on the job, the worker’s compensation insurance is responsible to pay for all medical services related to that injury, providing the services are deemed medically necessary. Each state has their own process for worker’s compensation claims. The most common cases seen by ReMed are from PA, NJ, MD, NY and OH.
Auto Liability/Auto Insurance
Some auto insurance policies have a larger medical benefit, which may be used to provide coverage for injury related expenses and medically necessary treatment.
There are some health insurances for which ReMed is an approved provider. ReMed is willing to work with any insurance company who may consider covering post acute brain injury services.
Some individuals have received a settlement from the injury/accident and choose to pay privately for services. ReMed works with the individual/family/support system to ensure that services are provided in the most efficient way possible to protect those resources.
