Shara Acupuncture, P.C. v New York Cent. Mut. Fire Ins. Co., 2013 NY Slip Op 50255(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2013)
“Contrary to plaintiff’s argument on appeal, defendant’s denial of claim forms were sufficient to preserve defendant’s fee schedule defense (see Arco Med. NY, P.C. v Lancer Ins. Co., 37 Misc 3d 136[A], 2012 NY Slip Op 52178[U] [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2012]).”
The Arco-Lancer case allowed for an EBT on “billing practices” because box #18 was checked.
