No-Fault Collections Attorney In New York
When medical providers administer car accident victim’s under New York’s No-Fault Laws, it is given in good faith that the insurance carriers will reimburse the providers.
However, many times the insurance companies do not pay the providers what is owed in a timely fashion or may not pay at all. New York’s No-Fault Laws were originally designed to ensure the people who were injured in car accidents could get medical treatment coverage without having to go through the additional legwork of proving fault, but insurance companies have used these laws to their advantage by stalling or outright denying claims based on technicalities.
Often, these medical providers are left with the decision to waste valuable time and money pursuing the insurance companies through endless bureaucratic processes or write the outstanding balances off as a loss. This dilemma puts an unfair burden on hard-working medical providers and is the reason our No-Fault collections attorneys in New York have dedicated themselves to fighting for the providers.

Common Reasons Insurers Deny No-Fault Claims From Medical Providers
The following are examples of how an insurance company can deny claims from health care providers by obfuscating the information or omitting essential details from their reviews.
Medical Necessity Denials
The most common reason insurers give for denying claims from medical providers is services not being medically necessary. In order to avoid paying these claims, insurance companies will often hire medical experts to review the case and determine if the services in question were actually necessary.
In many cases, experts are either not qualified to determine the necessity of the services or will side with the insurance companies because it is in their best financial interest. If your claim has been denied based on a determination of medical necessity, our attorneys can help you combat the decision and receive the reimbursement you are owed. We often find the peer review doctors rely on logical fallacies, fail to provide sources for claims in their review, or ignore positive findings that do not support the denial.
Our attorneys review the peer review report and, if necessary, hire our own medical experts to provide an objective opinion about the services in question. We have a network of highly qualified medical experts we work with on a regular basis. Our attorneys understand how to use their testimony to effectively fight for our clients.
Independent Medical Exam Denials
Another common tactic insurers use against healthcare providers is working with IME (Independent Medical Exam) doctors who are financially motivated like the peer review doctors to find reasons to deny a claim on behalf of the insurer. In our work with medical providers seeking No-Fault compensation, we often find the IME doctor overlooks obvious medical issues in order to claim that the victim has full range of motion, is not suffering from any disability, and will not need long-term care. These findings are easily contradicted by the victim’s own records.
If you have been denied reimbursement based on an IME report, our attorneys will review the report and work with our network of medical experts to demonstrate the errors and inaccuracies. We know how to effectively use evidence to have wrongfully denied claims paid.
Another common reason insurers use to deny claims is claiming the services were not provided within the timeframe required by New York law. In many cases this is not true, and the insurer is using this as an excuse to avoid paying a claim. Our attorneys will review your records to determine if the services in question were actually rendered within the appropriate window. If services were provided in the appropriate window, we will fight to have your claim paid.
