I have received a denial for treatments I administered, Progressive is saying the condition patient is coming for is not caused by the original accident.
> Can I ask her to pay out of pocket moving forward?
No, no agreements verbal or written at all.
I am asking because it is believed in my field that once a patient is covered by no fault, a provider cannot collect a cent from that patient.
It's the driver's automobile insurance policy which provides for personal injury, the patient is the injured pedestrian.
If you don't do no-fault, I will still pay you, but I probably need to consult someone else.
Let me know, thanks.
Are you versed in new state no-fault law?
I've already had one expert who was not.
I have been treating a patient who was hit by a driver. The driver's no-fault insurance i through Progressive. After 6 weeks, I have received a denial for the treatments I administered, Progressive is saying the condition the patient is coming for is not caused by the original accident.
I have not entered into any written or verbal agreement with her or her attourney (not even aware if she has one) regarding billing... but I don't want to break the law if it is illegal to ask her to pay for future treatments.
