Art. 409.  Payment of medical and similar expenses

In a civil case, evidence of furnishing or offering or promising to pay expenses or losses occasioned by an injury to person or damage to property is not admissible to prove liability for the injury or damage nor is it admissible to mitigate, reduce, or avoid liability therefor.  This Article does not require the exclusion of such evidence when it is offered solely for another purpose, such as to enforce a contract for payment.
