Protecting Injured People

October 2nd, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Coining the phrase, Protecting Injured People, the sponsor of legislation to reinstate no fault auto insurance, or PIP, which expired at midnight Sunday, says his legislation will set fee schedules for treatments. One of the complaints with the old system is that it did not set a schedule of payments for treatments and that resulted in some taking advantage and overcharging the system. Now, state Senator Bill Posey says companies had better pay or else.†† ďUnder the new system, you get 30 bucks for an ice pack. Pay the 30 dollars. If you donít pay it, youíd better be prepared to prove the claim of fraud.† Insurance is no good to consumers if companies donít pay it…donít pay claims. So thatís the balance that we have to put in here, and thatís in here. . This bill is totally consumer friendly.Ē
Even with the changes, Posey says there is no guarantee lawmakers will act to save No Fault. He says special interests are working as hard as he has ever seen against the legislation.
