Why did Allstate send me a check for my medical bills?
Why did Allstate send the check to me and not my doctor? I had to go get physical therapy after an accident and I told the therapists to bill Allstate.

“In most cases, when a car insurance company makes a medical settlement, they will send the check directly to the victim, even if they make it payable to the hospital or medical provider as well.
It’s up to you to make sure you use this money to cover your medical expenses. Once a claim has been settled, your insurer won’t make additional payments.
If you want additional medical support, consider adding MedPay (medical payments coverage) to your policy.”
