Patients can choose the hospital or centre they want to be treated at. In no case is this the insurer’s decision. Sometimes the insurance company imposes on its insured the place to go to be diagnosed and treated after an accident. However, the insured is the one with the final word and it will be the insurance the responsible of the costs of their insured’s treatment.
No need to pay any payment
Those involved in an accident must have it clear that they can choose Hospital La Paloma’s Traffic Injury Unit and they will not have to pay anything at entrance. The Hospital itself handles all expenses arising from your care with your insurer. You simply have to indicate, at the entrance, the license plate of your vehicle, the one of the opposite car and the insurance information. If you are a pedestrian, the data of the vehicle that caused the accident.
It should also be clear that patients going to lower-level outpatient centres can affect the duration of treatments and the classification of injuries. This directly affects the calculation of the compensation that may correspond.
