Amendments to New PIP
Posted By Christian Givens || May 14, 2012
According to a recent Palm Beach Post article, written by John Kennedy, Florida's new PIP law has to be fixed. The modifications to existing PIP (Personal Injury Protection) insurance that recently passed in Florida need some modifications of their own. As the new law is currently written, there will be a six month gap in eligibility for health care professionals that could allow insurance companies to not pay some PIP providers.
Essentially, the law could provide grounds for insurance companies to legally not pay for work performed by health care professionals who treat accident victims. Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration is working to eliminate this gap via an executive order or rule of law, however some legal experts express concern over whether or not the agency's "fix" will guarantee that providers get paid.
