No-Fault Injuries back to top >>

1. No-Fault Information Required: All patients are required to bring at the time of your initial appointment the insurance carrier name, address and phone number as well as the policy number of the vehicle in which or by which you were injured. If you were injured by a vehicle as a pedestrian or while riding a bicycle, please make sure to have the vehicle policy number that hit you. Please also make sure you have a claim number from the insurance carrier. All claims must be put in to the insurance carrier within 45 days of the date of accident.

2. Accepting Assignment: As a courtesy, this office will bill your insurance carrier and accept assignment as long as you have filled out the No-Fault assignment of benefits form as well as filled out an application for no-fault benefits with your carrier. Patients who fail to complete these forms will be subject to payment at the time of service and can submit to their insurance carrier for medical reimbursement.

3. No-Fault vs. Workers’ Comp: If you are driving a vehicle while working i.e. delivery truck or taxicab, your claim is a worker’s compensation claim and should be filed with your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier.

4. Independent Medical Exam: All patients will eventually be subject to an independent medical exam by your vehicles’ insurance carrier. Please make sure to attend, as failure to attend will deny all of your medical benefits. All claims after the denial of medical coverage will be billed to your private insurance. If you do not have private coverage you will be subject to no-fault rates and be billed personally for all charges incurred.

5. Attorney: If you have an attorney handling your case, please make us aware of their name, phone number and address.
