Michigan No Fault Benefits | Medical Mileage Benefits

0 Comment

Medical Mileage Benefits are one of the benefits that are available to some injured motorcyclists in Michigan through their No Fault insurance policy.  No Fault insurance benefits are available when a biker has been injured in an accident involving a car, truck, SUV, or other motor vehicle.  Medical mileage is a very important benefit, but, too often, people who have been injured in motorcycle accidents fail to claim it because they do not know it is available or because they do not understand how it works.

Medical mileage benefits are payments that reimburse accident victims for mileage expenses to and from their medical appointments.  The exact amount is not set.  Instead the payment is reimbursement for a reasonable rate per mile.  Because the rate is computed on a “per mile” basis, the insurance company requires accident victims to record the date of their appointments, the name and address of the doctor, clinic, or hospital, and the distance to and from their home in miles.  This is so the insurance company can verify the medical mileage benefit is actually being used to pay for trips to and from a medical appointment.

Accident victims can make a claim for medical mileage by submitting a medical mileage claim form to their insurance adjuster.  It is best to document the date of each appointment and the number of miles round-trip from your home to the medical office.

Although medical mileage benefits are supposed to last for the entire time an accident victim needs to transportation to and from medical appointments related to the accident, an insurance company can deny any claim that is submitted more than one year after the date of the medical appointment.  Because of this, I always recommend my clients submit their claim forms every month.  This way their benefits are much easier to keep track of and it is easier for them to remember each appointment.  This helps them get the full amount they are entitled to.
