Health Insurance Matching Program Defense at LOIS

Civil Practice Team Attorney Chris Major, Esq., successfully defends HIMP-1 claims in New York. The total demand was $250,000 over six claims. We settled all six in one day for $21,000 total: three of them for $2,500, two for $0, and one for $13,500.

None of them even came near our client’s potential liability under the New York State fee schedules, which is what the client was expecting to pay. When the adjuster took the settlements to management for final approval, they were baffled at the low settlement amounts and couldn’t fathom how two cases settled for $0!
