SUPREME COURT DECIDES FEE SCHEDULE REDUCTION CASE
 
By RUSSEL LAZEGA
 
THE SUPREME COURT OF FLORIDA on July 5, 21013 ruled that PIP insurers may not apply the 2008 PIP medical fee schedule to reduce medical provider bills unless the insurance policy specifically indicated that this payment methodology would be used.  What this means for Florida hospitals and medical providers is that medical providers may be able to go back as far as 2008 and recoup these reductions from the insurers.

 APPEALS COURT OVERTURNS INJUNCTION ON NEW PIP LAW 

The Florida 1st District Court of Appeal has overturned an injunction issued by Tallahassee Judge Terry Lewis which had barred the Department of FInancial Services from enforcing parts of the new PIP law.  The appeals court found that the massage therapists and acupuncturists who brought the challenge lacked any legal standing or right to bring the claim because they were not the injured accident victim and therefore did not suffer direct injury as a result of the law.  The decision clearly leaves open the possibility of future challenges to the law law by accident victims as well as possible appeal to the Supreme Court.  We'll keep watching as the battle has just started.
