Trick or Treatment? Unmasking Upcoding and Unbundling in PIP Claims

Siona Bieber, Attorney - Roig Lawyers

We will discuss how to effectively spot CPT codes frequently unbundled or upcoded by PIP providers. Examples include untimed codes billed for multiple units; submission of electropads with or without EMS therapy; and codes requiring the submission of a separate report billed on the same date as an evaluation and management service. We will evaluate how to timely investigate PIP claims through appropriate pre-suit discovery, and the reasonable scope for 6(b) requests related to these services. The presentation includes a case law discussion, and the impact of requesting payment of non-compensable charges in a PIP pre-suit demand letter.
