We help medical providers recover personal injury protection (“PIP”) benefits in automobile accident cases.
In Florida, drivers are required to have “no fault” or PIP insurance in the amount of $10,000.00. That means, if you’re in an accident, regardless if it’s your fault or someone else’s, you are entitled to $10,000 in benefits from your auto insurance carrier to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. The loss must be related to that accident.
Where do we come in?
We help medical providers recover PIP benefits from auto insurance carriers. Auto insurance carriers are known to improperly deny or disallow PIP benefit reimbursements to medical providers. At no cost to them, we review the medical providers’ PIP files, send demands, and file lawsuits if necessary. We do all of the work and, at no point, do the medical providers have any out-of-pocket costs in the pursuit of these overdue PIP reimbursements. We only get paid if we recover PIP benefits for the medical providers.
Who is a medical provider?
Medical doctors, doctors of osteopathic medicine, chiropractors, hospitals, and EMS services. In 2012, the State of Florida passed HB 119 – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) for Auto Insurance Fraud to reduce PIP fraud. The amended Florida PIP statute does not allow massage therapists, acupuncturists, individuals who do “chinese or herbal” medicine to bill PIP for medical services rendered. Furthermore, massage therapy and acupuncture services are no longer covered even when a medical doctor is overseeing such services.
