This is the second part of our series offering suggestions on how someone who does not have health insurance can obtain medical care in Georgia.
Medical Liens – typically medical liens are where a doctor in exchange a written agreement to pay the doctor back at the end of the claim will treat the patient and not bill till the treatment is complete.
Be warned not all doctors will take on medical liens, in fact most doctors will not take on patients on a lien. Why is this you ask? Well it is suspected that is because it is very hard to do business and hope to be paid later.
Then at the end of the claim, the doctor may not get full value for their services. Most doctors out of frustrations just do not accept these patients on a lien basis.
The good news is that there are some doctors who do accept patients on a lien basis and if you have an attorney they may ask your attorney to sign the lien as well.
In the next part of this series we will be looking at companies that will find you a doctor who will treat you on a lien and the how that may or may not be in your best interest.
