Will the hospital tell my insurance company about my car accident?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on February 24, 2021

I suffered some injuries in a car accident and went to a hospital for treatment. While I was there, the staff made copies of my auto insurance ID. Does this mean the hospital will notify my insurance company about the accident?

Yes, any injuries sustained during a car accident will be reported to your auto insurance company first for the medical bills to be paid. Anything above and beyond what your auto insurance company covers will be covered by your primary health insurance.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
