- work on a medical lien or attorney lien
- They know how to document your personal injury case
- Auto accidents is there primary field
- accept Pip and Med Pay

Third Party Billing
This gets confusing after a while. Third party billing and a doctor that takes auto insurance is almost the same thing. Third party billing is when a clinic has the ability to bill the insurer directly. Thus, they dont have to deal with an attorney. Although, one may be handling the medical case. However, third party billing is not the most common method a physician might use. They may use a medical lien or an attorney’s lien as well.
