Allstate can pay you the same rate as health insurance companies. Look at the paragraph on Page 9 that starts off “Where a medical provider has contracted with”.
A chiropractor can determine EMC under Allstate’s policy! Look at paragraph on Page 10 that starts off “Provided, however, a $10,000”.
*As for the “Medicare coding guidelines” portion, I believe there will be litigation over their policy language because it is not 100% clear.
**As for the 200% of Medicare portion, a judge in Broward county said that Allstate’s policy doesn’t them to reduce PIP bills to 200% of Medicare. Allstate has appealed that case.
