There is a wide range of uses and applications for an MRI scan. Very often, following an automobile accident, one or more MRI scans will be ordered by treating healthcare providers to aid in the diagnoses and treatment of the injured party. It is not uncommon for an injured party to undergo more than one MRI following an auto accident. Many times, the bills for the MRI scans are denied by the No-Fault insurance carrier on the grounds that they were “not medically necessary,” when in fact they are later proved to be just that. Each year our office successfully fights thousands of improperly denied bills for MRI scans performed after auto accidents, which the insurance carriers initially felt were “not medically necessary”.
As an MRI facility, it is your priority to provide the highest level of services to your customers. As you probably know, no-fault insurance companies make it extremely difficult to receive payments. They try to find any reason to deny payments, sometimes, even claims lawfully owed to you. Many MRI facilities are not aware that payment for their services is protected under NYS No-Fault Insurance Law.
