Why won’t the hospital take my health insurance?  Why do they need to know who the liability carrier is for the other driver?

QUESTION:

Why won’t the hospital take my health insurance?  Why do they need to know who the liability carrier is for the other driver?

AND THE ANSWER IS:

As discussed in the last blog post, the hospital wants the entire $100, not the negotiated rate of $62.  But they contracted with your health insurance carrier and they have to submit it on your health coverage, whether they like it or not.
