No Fault Q & A

What are no-fault doctors?

No-fault doctors are personal injury protection doctors who can treat your injuries following an accident and bill the car insurance company. At Halper Family Medicine, the staff understands the complexity and paperwork involved in such third party billing and are ready to help you.

What is a no-fault case?

No-fault insurance means your automobile insurance provider pays some or all of your medical bills if you get into a car wreck. It doesn’t matter who was at fault for the accident. Finding doctors who are willing to deal with no-fault cases can be a challenge.

Why seek a no-fault doctor after an automobile accident?

Many family practice doctors won’t deal with the hassle of treating car accident injuries and the paperwork involved in billing costs to insurance. These family practitioners don’t know how to file the correct forms and aren’t willing to take the extra steps; they stick to conventional health insurance filings.

At Halper Family Medicine, the staff treats you, and bills the automobile insurance company so you don’t have to worry about the cost of your treatment and focus on healing instead. If you exceed the limit of no-fault medical care covered by your auto insurance, the staff then complete the appropriate paperwork to file with your medical insurance company.

A no-fault doctor helps reduce the worry of how you’ll pay your medical bills. No upfront payment is required.

What types of injuries can a no-fault physician treat?

Car accidents can lead to immediate injuries as well as lingering dysfunction. At Halper Family Medicine, the team treats the following issues resulting from a car accident.

  • Whiplash and neck pain
  • Broken bones
  • Back pain
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Contusions
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sprains and strains

Even if you think you’re fine following a car accident, it’s a good idea to schedule an examination within the first two weeks afterward. This ensures no-fault insurance will pay. Sometimes, medical problems associated with your accident don’t become evident for a few days.
