Back in June of 2008 I was critically hit by a drunk driver while on active duty. Driver only had liability which was about $50,000, but my hospital bills after hospital stay and two extensive surgeries was approx. $130,000. Now, Tricare is taking care of the bills since i am active duty, but my lawyer is telling me that Tricare only takes care of the bills initially keeping a lien on the medical bills expecting payment through said drivers insurance company. Well the MAX his insurance company(state farm) can pay, which is the maximum for his coverage is the 50,000. This insanely small amount leaves me with 80,000 in medical bills plus lawyer fees. Now I know that tricare isnot goingto make me pay for all of that, but then again they arent going to pay all of that themselves either. does anyone know how these situations usually play out and how tricare works.
