Variety of Medical Clinics from A to Z
I recently enjoyed a post over at Medical Clinics – The Difference Between Clinical. The author essentially covered the entire spectrum and the variety of different types of clinics from A to Z.
It didn't seem like anything was left out of this article. As mentioned, while some medical clinics offer inpatient and others outpatient services, these facilities can range from hospitals and rural clinics to public clinics and free clinics.
Most importantly, the first question one should ask himself before deciding on what type of clinic to visit is what type of insurance will be used for the ailment. Most of the medical professional facilities mentioned above will take normal insurance including all the major carriers.
Occasionally, specific types of physicians or doctors with a variety of medical specialties are needed for different types of injuries. Specialty clinics comes under the heading of those injuries and pain resulting from auto accidents, injured at work and slip and falls commonly referred to as personal injury.
Since the injured party will not be using their personal insurance for medical reimbursements but relying on their employer's worker's comp insurance provider or an at fault driver's car insurance carrier to pay the bills, then this is referred to as third party billing.
Medical treatment reimbursements for worker's compensation injuries requires additional workload on the medical staff in the form of pre-authorization and extra paperwork as mentioned over at Choose your Medical Clinic Wisely. When it comes to car accidents and personal injury, the physician will require a guarantee from the injured party's attorney for medical payments once the case settles if it ever does at all.
