I can't comment on your specific case, but generally, if an insured accepts a check for medical services provided by a medical provider and the cashes / deposits the check and fails to use funds to pay the medical provider, such action can be construed as insurance fraud and can subject insured to criminal felony charges for insurance fraud.
So generally, it is very important to pay the medical provider the entire amount of the bill for which insured made claim and received funds from the insurance company as soon as possible, in order to avoid potential serious criminal charges.
