Therapists are often an important part of the rehabilitation and treatment of patients suffering from an array of injuries after a motor vehicle accident. Often, as the result of an “Independent Medical Examination” (IME), No-Fault Insurance carriers will deny PT bills for “maximum medical improvement” (MMI), “lack of medical necessity” or some other reason. Tonalaw will fight to get your wrongly denied No-Fault bills paid quickly and efficiently.
As a therapist, it is your priority to provide the highest level of care to treat your patients. As you know, no-fault insurance companies are extremely difficult to deal with, often withholding payments. Many therapists are not aware that payment for their services is protected under NYS No-Fault Insurance Law.
Let 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 working on more productive tasks. 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 Process
During our initial consultation, we inform you of the legal rights and remedies available to physical therapists 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, clients will 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)
