GEICO, Health Care Providers Settle Suit for Underpayments

The auto glass industry isn’t the only one suffering from payment challenges. GEICO General Insurance Co. and a class of health care providers requested a Florida federal court to sign off on a deal March 1 to permit health care providers to make claims for 100% of charges made for personal injury protection under GEICO. Filed in May 2019 by Randy Rosenberg, a chiropractor, the suit alleged that GEICO’s policy requires reimbursement of all submitted charges less than the amount permitted under the insurer’s established fee schedule. For GEICO’s auto insurance policyholders in Florida injured in traffic accidents, the state’s Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law requires drivers to possess personal injury protection of at least $10,000, including medical and lost wage coverage. Rosenberg claimed in court documents that GEICO’s policy required the insurer pay the full amount of charges to a health care provider.
