As a medical provider, you may be familiar with PIP. Personal Injury Protection (PIP), also known as no-fault insurance, helps to cover expenses such as medical bills and loss of wages for those involved in motor vehicle accidents, regardless of who is at fault.
Since Florida is a No-Fault state, PIP coverage is mandatory to operate a motor vehicle. Florida requires a minimum of $10,000 in coverage for various expenses following an accident. PIP coverage is not limited to the driver of the vehicle, but also extends to passengers, those hit by the vehicle, and even members of the policy holder’s household.
PIP provides direct payment to medical providers for any injuries related to the accident covered by PIP. You may wonder, what happens if the insurance companies fail to pay the medical bills covered by PIP?
As a medical provider, you are probably familiar with insurance companies underpaying, delaying, or even denying rightful payment to medical providers. There are solutions for receiving the compensation you deserve. PIP attorneys help medical providers recover money from insurance companies when they are wrongfully denied personal injury protection benefits. As one of Tampa Bay’s prominent PIP law firms, we seek to be a source of information and guidance for medical providers throughout Florida.
One of the most important things a medical provider can do is have their patients sign an Assignment of Benefits (AOB), which assigns the patient’s rights over to their medical provider. This form is critical for medical providers to have when pursuing a PIP suit.
As a medical provider, it is important to be aware of insurance companies who are holding out on payment in order to better understand whether there is a potential for a lawsuit.
In order to best serve medical providers, we offer 5-year audits upon request only.
