After accident, patient crashes into $700,000 bill for spine surgery

January 19, 2024

New Jersey law, as in 12 other states, requires drivers to buy personal injury protection, or PIP, coverage to pay medical expenses. Unfortunately, Gottlieb's pain persisted. On April 3, 2020, Gottlieb underwent a complex type of fusion surgery on the herniated discs in his cervical spine. It paid $52,365 toward that before Gottlieb's medical coverage in his auto policy was exhausted. The total Geico paid the hospital was in line with what employers paid and was actually less than the two highest fees seen in his data.
