Welcome to Our Blog !

Elite Physician Services (EPS) has over 22 years experience in the medical industry. EPS primarily focuses in the PIP (personal injury) area working directly with Hospitals, Surgical Centers, and Surgeons. Health care rules and regulations are constantly changing making EPS your go to source. Insurance companies today are not only hesitant to pay on PIP claims but find ways to deny a patient's medically necessary treatment. EPS has been successful in fighting for the patient and doctor to get what is respectfully owed.

The Department of Banking and Insurance (NJ) sent out a bulletin (10-30) on October 28, 2010 to all New Jersey Private Passenger Automobile Insureres and Motorbus Insurers and the National Arbitration Forum in regards to rules on PIP reimbursement. Before the new fee schedule became effective on 8/10/09 providers were billing according to their usual, customary, and reasonable charges. This bulletin now allows for DRP's and Insurer's to reimburse providers by referencing Ingenix and the Wasserman database for fees that are not on the fee schedule. In our opinion we find this unfair as Insureres were paying the provider's charges for years and then all of the sudden decide to pay at rates that are more convienant to the Insurance companies.

EPS provides services to Doctors, Hospitals, and Surgical Centers that includes everything from insurance verification and eligibilty to the processing of files for arbitration.
