You cannot file a claim against yourself. Get the medical treatment you need but make the claim against your medical insurance and not your homeowners insurance.
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
Most (if not all) homeowners policies only cover you for your liability against a third party. Unfortunately what you describe is most likely not going to be covered under your insurance policy.
