The Florida Supreme Court Issues Key PIP Ruling

On July 3, 2013, the Florida Supreme Court issued an opinion in GEICO v. Virtual Imaging Services, Inc., that under the 2008 amendments to the Florida PIP statute, a PIP insurer cannot take advantage of the Medicare fee schedules to limit reimbursements to providers without notifying its insured by electing those fee schedules in its policy. Because the policy, in that case, did not reference the permissive method of calculation based on the Medicare fee schedules, GEICO could not limit its reimbursement based on those fee schedules.
