Andrew J. Blair was the first attorney in the State of New Jersey to be filing PIP arbitrations on behalf of providers. He began filing arbitrations in 1992. At that time he was chosen by the American Arbitration Association to serve on their advisor council where he was able to re-draft the arbitration rules and participate in the selection process of the present arbitration panel.
When AICRA (Automobile Insurance Cost Reduction Act) was implemented Andrew Blair was asked by the president of the arbitration forum to participate on the committee to redraft the present day arbitration rules and to expand the panel of arbitrators. He continues to represent medical providers in PIP arbitrations and specializes in advising providers on how to improve their billing and documentation, maximizing the percentages of collection on each claim and receiving their payments as quickly as possible.
Medical providers can maximize the percentage of collection on each of their PIP claim.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is an extension of car insurance which pays medical expenses for parties injured in an auto accident and covered under an auto insurance policy. It is sometimes called “no-fault” coverage because it pays medical costs no matter who caused the accident. Coverage includes the cost of treatment you receive from hospitals, doctors and other medical providers and any medical equipment that may be needed to treat injuries. Additional PIP coverage can include reimbursement for certain other expenses, such as lost wages. It is important to promptly file for arbitration when appeals are denied in order to secure payment before the PIP policy exhausts.
