Can my car insurance company recover money for medical claims from me after my Driving While Impaired case is over?

I was given a conditional license for less than 50 days after completion of VIP & DDP classes. GEICO want $6400.00 back for medical expenses.

Why is his license suspended ?
My boyfriend was entenced to a year in rikers for a felony b on 7/1 I just received a letter from dmv that his license has been suspended due to a drug or alcohol offense. Why is it suspended when he wasn't near or around a vehicle for what they charged him with .
