Mandating coverage

The health care provider is required to demonstrate through their chart notes and documentation that the treatment provided is “reasonable, necessary, and related” to the motor vehicle accident.

The personal injury protection part of a policy is actually a contract between the insured (your patient) and the insurer (the insurance company).

Activation of pip benefits for your patient does not depend upon who was at fault in the accident, only that your patient was involved in an auto accident and was in a car that had automobile insurance.

Again, mandatory minimum requirements in Washington law state that all pip policies contain the loss of services section at $40 per day, not to exceed $200 per week.

Similar to the wage loss benefit, the insurance contract requires that the treating doctor authorize the patient to hire household help as part of the rehabilitation plan.

For the last two weeks, the insurer would pay 85 percent of $100, or a total of $85 per week.

In a second example, if your patient earned $1,000 per week and was disabled for the first four weeks after the accident, the insurer would be excluded from paying benefits for the first two weeks, but would pay for weeks three and four.

New rules from the Department of Health and Human Services will let businesses or non-profit organizations lodge religious or moral objections to obtain an exemption from the law's mandate that employers provide contraceptives coverage in health insurance with no co-payment.

Burwell, an appeal brought by Christian groups demanding full exemption from the requirement to provide insurance covering contraception under the Affordable Care Act, is heard by the U. Conservative Christian activists and congressional Republicans praised the move, while reproductive rights advocates and Democrats criticized it.

Lynch and Caroline Humer WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's administration on Friday undermined requirements under the Obamacare law that employers provide insurance to cover women's birth control, keeping a campaign pledge that pleased his conservative Christian supporters.

It was unclear how many employers would actually drop birth control coverage on religious grounds, and there were significant doubts that many big ones would.

Under the Obama administration, this constitutional right was seriously eroded," Republican House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said."The Trump administration just took direct aim at birth control coverage for 62 million women," Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards said."With this rule in place, any employer could decide that their employees no longer have health insurance coverage for birth control," Richards added.
