What if the victim does not want to bill crime related expenses to their insurance?

Under the SAFE Payment Program, federally-funded insurances like Medicaid, Medicare, and Tricare must be billed. The victim can choose not to bill a private insurance.

Under the VVF, all relevant insurances must be billed. If a victim is uninsured and they went to a hospital, they must apply to the hospitals financial assistance program. VVF would cover any additional expense after these collateral resources are used.
