Skilled Fort Lauderdale PIP Attorneys Advocating for Medical Providers
Helping South Florida medical providers secure payment under PIP
Personal injury protection (PIP) provides timely payment for the extensive costs associated with an automobile accident. While many Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorneys provide PIP claims assistance to the injured, Yeboah Law Group, P.A. also recognizes the challenges that medical providers face when seeking to collect payment from a PIP policy. That’s why we offer assistance to medical providers, with no upfront costs. If your medical practice needs assistance with the PIP claims process, contact our office for guidance through this intricate area of law.
What medical providers need to know about PIP?
The state of Florida requires motor vehicle owners to maintain PIP insurance. It is “no-fault” coverage, which means that it pays benefits regardless of which driver was at fault for the accident. So, even if your patient caused the related accident, PIP will pay medical expenses. Another important aspect of PIP is its applicability to patients other than the vehicle owner. These policies may also cover relatives living with the policyholder, as well as passengers within the vehicle.
When a patient contacts your office for accident-related treatment, take the following steps towards your PIP claims process:
- Make a copy of the patient’s auto insurance card and record the PIP claim number, if the patient has one.
- Obtain information about the accident from the patient.
- Have the patient complete an assignment of benefits form, as well as a disclosure form.
When you are ready to bill for services, be sure to use the appropriate billing forms and submit the required medical documentation. For assistance, contact a South Florida PIP lawyer to help you through the process.
Advocating for your interests when PIP doesn’t pay
Under Florida law, PIP bills are overdue if not paid within 30 days. If your requested payment amounts are reduced or denied and the insurance company has not reasonably proven lack of responsibility, you may have grounds to seek payment through a court proceeding.
The law requires that you provide the insurance company with a demand for payment letter, which allows 30 days for payment of the claim and warns that a lawsuit will be filed if payment is not received. If a lawsuit is necessary, the South Florida auto accident lawyers at Yeboah Law Group have extensive litigation experience to handle the numerous steps and intricacies of your case.
