Personal Injury Protection ''PIP'' Arbitrations
If you are a physician or a health care provider and you are treating a patient who has been injured in an auto accident pursuant to an assignment of benefits, and your patient has been refused treatment or whose benefits have been terminated, we can protect your rights.
We represent chiropractors, orthopedists, neurologists, acupuncturists, psychologists, neuropsychologists and radiology facilities against insurance companies who refuse to pay for your services.
In order to best protect yourself in advance of any adversarial proceeding against an auto insurance company, it is important to have a valid assignment of benefits agreement with your patient. Additionally, you must seek precertification for any treatment you are recommending to the patient. If you don’t, you will be subject to a 50% reduction in payment. If your request for precertification is denied, you must file an “internal appeal.”
PIP is such a particularly nuanced area of law, that we invite you to call us to discuss any PIP concern.
If a healthcare provider prevails in a PIP Arbitration, the insurance company has to pay its lawyer’s fee and filing costs.
