Pasco County sees over 6,000 auto accident-related injuries on average each year. Due to delayed symptom onset and rejection of needed treatment, many injuries go unreported, meaning the real number each year is likely much higher.
If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, don’t delay in seeking treatment, even if you feel okay at the moment. Go immediately to the emergency room to be evaluated for major trauma. Once you leave, make your next call to Florida Wellness Medical Center in Trinity at (844) 935-5669. We offer appointments as quickly as the same day with a medical professional with experience treating auto accident-related injuries.
Many people delay or completely refuse medical treatment after an auto accident because their symptoms did not start immediately after the accident or the emergency room discharged them with no major issues. However, they do not realize that many common injuries after an auto accident do not begin showing signs until days or even weeks later. By including a visit to a practitioner trained in identifying auto accident injuries, you’ll be ensuring that you are in optimal health for years to come.
In Florida, anyone involved in a vehicle accident must seek treatment for their injuries within 14 days from the day of the accident to qualify for coverage under Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. If you do not seek care by this deadline, you may have to find other means to pay for your treatment. Some other options include personal health insurance, direct billing, or a Letter of Protection (LOP) from an attorney.
At Florida Wellness Medical Center in Trinity, you do not need a referral to receive care for your auto accident-related injuries. Simply give us a call at (844) 935-5669 or request an appointment online to begin your treatment plan today.
Insurance is not required for post-auto accident care. Most of our patients are able to get the cost of their auto accident-related injury care covered by Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. PIP covers 80% of qualified costs of treatment, up to $10,000, if the treatment is certified as emergent by a medical professional. We have extensive experience with this type of insurance and will help you navigate receiving these benefits.
For expenses not covered by PIP, we also accept most insurances, including worker’s compensation plans. If payment for your injuries is included in pending litigation, your attorney may provide a Letter of Protection (LOP). Patients without any of these options are welcome to take advantage of our self-pay rates.
