JANUARY 30, 2013 - NEW REGULATION
COMMISSIONER OF FINANCIAL SERVICES ENACTS INSURANCE INDUSTRY REGULATION CHANGE
On January 30, 2013 the Benjamin Lawsky, New York State Superintendent of Financial Services (Formerly the New York State Department of Insurance) used his position to unilaterally promulgate and amend the New York State no-fault insurance regulations to allow insurance companies to deny payment of healthcare treatment related to motor vehicle collision if the insurance carrier determines that the healthcare provider has not completely satisfied all the insurance companies' verification requests.
There is no provision in the amendment to the regulations for a determination of reasonableness of the verification request or provision for third party to review them prior to an arbitration.
In essence this will allow the insurance carriers to flood New York no-fault health care providers with incessant requests for verification.
Consider attending our no-fault seminar where we will discuss how to handle this further obstacle in treating and being paid for treatment of individuals hurt in car crashes.
