How Will A PIP Arbitration Lawyer in Essex County Assist Me?
PIP Arbitration’s are the mechanism to resolve disputes between medical providers and automobile insurance companies. PIP is a complex system, and the road to payment has never been more frustrating or time-consuming. The process is nuanced, involves third parties, and has a legalese language all its own. A New Jersey PIP arbitration lawyer at Birkhold & Maider, LLC in Nutley, NJ will help navigate the road to payment. Contact us to set up a free consultation.
These actions by auto insurance companies often filter down from the healthcare provider to the insured injured person in the form of insurance companies delaying payment of approved claims following a car accident. Both medical providers and the insured have a vested interest in seeing those bills paid. Non-payment undermines a patient’s ability to move ahead through an accident injury. Should bills remain unpaid or underpaid by the PIP carrier, PIP insurance attorneys can pursue payment directly from the insurer by filing a PIP arbitration petition with Forthright Solutions. These proceedings are governed by rules set up by Forthright as approved by the Department of Insurance and Banking.
Some common defenses that insurers use to deny payment include, but are not limited to, the patient failed to cooperate with the insurer; the patient is not eligible for coverage; precertification was not requested; the patient utilized an out of network facility; the service was not medically necessary; the policy limits were exhausted; the wrong billing codes were utilized; the facility did not provide adequate documentation; the facility did not comply with billing regulations, and more.
Taking these matters to a successful arbitration requires a legal team experienced in PIP arbitration matters. A PIP Arbitration Lawyer at NJ-based Birkhold & Maider, LLC can assist with precertificaton of medical treatment, filing an Arbitration Demand with the National Arbitration Forum. The latter is a formal request for the NAF to appoint an arbitrator to settle the dispute between the auto insurance company and the healthcare provider.
