I have great insurance, and after a recent accident I was treated by my physician. He treated me before after a previous accident and he submitted all my bills to my insurance. This time, he had me sign a lien against any potential judgment or settlement. I was under the impression that he was submitting all my bills to my insurance. He never discussed billing with me. I even paid the co-pays at his office. Now, my doctor refuses to send my bills to my insurance company, and wants me to pay the entire amount pursuant to the lien. Can he do this? Can I force him to submit the bills to my medical insurance? Will I have to pay him the full amount he claims I owe from my settlement?
