Health insurance carriers occasionally have the right to recover for the amounts they have paid for your medical expenses when related to a personal injury claim. This is referred to as subrogation. The theory behind allowing subrogation, is the injured individual should not be able to recover twice for the same accident. That is, once by health insurance paying for the bills and the second being receiving money via the settlement for the medical expenses. Therefore, to prevent this double recovery, on some occasions, health insurance providers have the right to be subrogated for the portion of medical expenses they pay for.
