Unless your car paid for your insurance more likely to make out the check with your name and repair shop name.
If your car paid for you can have the check made out to your name only and use it at will. Contact your insurance and have an adjuster look at it, by the meantime get estimates from another shops too. This will give you some ammo when you meet Insurance adjuster.
