The attorneys at Williams Cedar have succeeded in receiving payment for outstanding medical bills in hundreds of cases. Our lawyers and experienced PIP staff handle PIP arbitration cases at no cost or fee to the medical provider. All of our PIP attorney’s fees and costs are paid by the PIP insurer as part of the PIP award. This means that the doctor or healthcare provider pays no attorneys fees. When Williams Cedar obtains compensation for you, the PIP insurer who did not pay your bill will pay Williams Cedar PIP attorney fees and costs.
Pre-certification of Medical Treatment
Patients, doctors, and/or providers must pre-certify certain types of medical treatment for patients injured in automobile accidents. Failure to pre-certify or properly appeal the denial of pre-certification may result in the insurance company denying payment. Frequently, insurance companies will contest the medical necessity of medical or chiropractic treatment and physical therapy for injuries to the neck and back. Insurance companies also commonly contest the need for diagnostic tests, such as MRIs and EMG/NCV studies. Our lawyers and trained PIP staff can help doctors and providers navigate this complex area of the law.
Forthright PIP Arbitration’s
Forthright began administering No-Fault PIP claims in New Jersey on April 1, 2011.
After an insurance company denies payment for services rendered to patients injured in automobile accidents, patients, doctors, diagnostic testing facilities and medical providers may file an Arbitration Demand with the Forthright. This is not a lawsuit but rather, it is a formal request for Forthright to appoint an arbitrator to resolve the dispute between the provider and the insurance company. The arbitrators are licensed attorneys who have experience in PIP arbitrations and dispute resolution. The decisions of the arbitrators are binding on both sides of the dispute. Our lawyers have successfully represented doctors and providers in PIP arbitrations since New Jersey created its binding arbitration process in 1998.
Our attorneys have also brought appeals in the Superior Court of New Jersey and have handled PIP matters in the Appellate Court of New Jersey on behalf of medical providers.
