Information provided to insurers during the initial period after an accident is critical in guaranteeing that the appropriate medical treatment is delivered and unnecessary care is detected. \Unscrupulous medical professionals and attorneys can build up thousands of dollars in bills for fraudulent care well before the insurance company is noti­ fied of an accident,\ said Bourdeau. \Cutting tlie time period limits the op­ portunity for these scams.\ Bourdeau also said that the new 45-day time frame for supplying proof of a medical claim and wage loss is am­ ple. Employers, for example, are re­ quired to notify' workers compensation insurers within 48 hours of a workplace accident. The new rules will make life a lot more difficult for the fraud rings that take advantage of loopholes in the law by giving insurers the tools they need to detect fraud,\ according to Bourdeau. The New York Insurance Association is New York's trade association of property/casualty insurance companies that provide insurance coverage for autos, homes and businesses throughout the state.
