Will my auto insurance cover my medical bills if I accidentally slammed my fingers in the door?

I was getting out of my car and closed the door before I could get my fingers out of the way. I wasn't sure if my fingers were broken, so I went to the ER. The billing department at the hospital said I wasn't covered, but my car insurance should cover it, right?

“Sorry to hear about your fingers! But don’t worry, you’re not alone. Slamming your fingers in the car door is one of the most common car-related accidents.
The good news is that several types of insurance can cover this injury. In particular, medical payments coverage and personal injury protection (PIP) can help you take care of your medical bill. And the good news is that there’s usually no deductible.
Good luck on rehabbing your fingers! “
