Dr Jeff J. Mollins has been practicing in downtown Brooklyn for over 25 years. He specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of patients injured in accidents. Some examples of these accidents include slip and falls, construction accidents, work accidents (workers compensation), as well as automobile accidents (no-fault).
In the unfortunate event that you are involved in a car accident, there are a few things you should know when it comes to health care. First of all, most importantly, you should be aware that New York is a no-fault state. What that means is that no matter who is at fault, it is mandatory that the insurance company covering the vehicle that you are in (whether you are a driver or a passenger) will pay for all your health care needs related to injuries sustained in the accident. You must be seen by a doctor that accepts no-fault coverage.
What if the vehicle you are in does not have insurance coverage? The State of New York has a provision that all passengers must be covered in that instance. The state has its own insurance called MVAIC( Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation) which will automatically pay for all health care needs resulting from any injuries sustained in the accident (once again, regardless of fault). You still must go to a doctor that accepts no-fault coverage. So even if the driver of the car is uninsured, the state will pick up the tab for your no-fault insurance.
When an individual is involved in a car accident, they must contact the insurance company of the vehicle that they were in. In the case of no insurance, they have to contact M.V.A.I.C. The insurance company will then send that person a document known as a no-fault application. The no-fault application (which asks specific questions about the accident and also about the injuries sustained) must be completed, properly, and sent back to the insurance carrier within 30 days. If the application is not completed within that time period, no-fault benefits may be denied. Once the carrier receives the completed no fault application, in a timely manner, then the injured person can then seek
treatment at no cost to them.
