Michigan medical mileage benefits are for the reimbursement of your mileage expenses to and from your necessary medical appointments for injuries you suffered in a Michigan car accident, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident. The insurance company must pay for every mile of travel to and from your appointments. If you do not have transportation, the insurer must pay a transportation company to take you to and from your doctors and therapy treatments.
Medical Mileage Benefit Payments
You are entitled to these medical mileage benefits as long as you need to get to and from your medical appointments to be treated for the injuries you suffered in the accident. You are entitled to a reasonable rate per mile.
Submitting Your Medical Mileage Benefit Claim
Your medical mileage claim must be submitted to the insurance adjuster assigned to your claim. To file your claim, you need to make a list of the days that you attended appointments, the name and address of the doctor or clinic, and the distance to and from your home. You should submit the claim for reimbursement every thirty days.
What To Do If Your Medical Mileage Claim is Denied
If your insurance company refuses to pay your medical mileage benefits, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit. If you choose to begin a lawsuit against your insurance company for No-Fault benefits, you must file a lawsuit within one year of the date on which the last unpaid No-Fault benefit was incurred. Quite often, this claim is included in a lawsuit seeking payment of other unpaid expenses, like medical expenses and attendant care services. If you fail to file your lawsuit within this one year period, you will lose the right to have the benefit or expense paid.
