Does MCSP pay medical bills while litigation is pending?

Yes. If you win the litigation, the associated medical bills are paid from the settlement. If you lose the litigation and if the medical providers obtained MCSP prior authorization, then MCSP may pay the medical bills, assuming all billing criteria are met.
