Are Your Old PIP Files Worth Money?
Yes! Your PIP files are worth money! Since January 2008 the insurance companies have been paying 80% of medical bills that they capped at 200% of Medicare fee schedule. They were actually supposed to pay 80% of whatever a doctor billed. This means that you are basically owed money for every single patient if you sent a bill to PIP insurance. There are a few exceptions but 99% of the medical providers who billed PIP are owed money.
For example, letÕs assume that a doctor charges $40 to apply a hot/cold pack to a patient for therapy. PIP insurance companies from 2008-2012 were wrongfully limiting that hot pack to $10 which is 200% of Medicare. That means that the doctor in this situation is owed an extra $30 for every hot pack they billed. How many times do you bill for a hot pack in a week? in a year? in five years? As you can see, the insurance companies could owe a doctor thousands just for that one CPT code!
