Many times, following an auto accident, an injured patient requires surgical intervention by a neurosurgeon, most typically on their spine or brain. Shockingly, despite the serious nature of the surgeries involved, and the depth and complexity of those procedures, the No-Fault insurance carriers deny these often critical procedures as “not medically necessary”. Our office currently works with many neurosurgeons to get their denied surgical bills paid.
As a neurosurgeon, it is your priority to provide the highest level of care to treat and heal your patients. As you most likely have experienced, no-fault insurance companies make it extremely difficult to receive payments. They try to find any reason to deny claims, sometimes, even claims lawfully owed to you. Many neurosurgeons are not aware that payment for their services is protected under NYS No-Fault Insurance Law.
The attorneys and paralegals at TonaLaw will deal with the insurance companies while you run your business! Our services allow you to spend more time on billable services. There are no risks or upfront payments, TonaLaw is a no-fee law firm, all of our fees are fixed by statute and paid for by the insurance companies. If we don’t win, you don’t pay, it’s that simple.
Our No-Fault Collections Process
During our initial consultation, we will inform you of the legal rights and remedies available to neurosurgeons available under New York State Insurance Law. We aim to make the no-fault collection process as effortless as possible, closing most cases in 210 days or less. In some instances, our clients begin receiving no-fault payments in as little as 30 days from the initial file date. In order to begin processing claims, we will need the following documents:
- Assignment of benefits
- Outstanding bills, a billing ledger and proof of mailing if available
- Corresponding denials
- All medical records, reports, notes, and exams you have on the patient pertaining to the date of the accident
- A letter of medical necessity for treatment and/or a rebuttal letter to the peer review/ IME (optional but recommended)
