Neptune EUO scheduling rule on display againJune 3, 2018
Healthway Med. Care, P.C. v American Commerce Ins. Co., 2018 NY Slip Op 50733(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2018)
“However, plaintiff correctly argues on appeal that defendant failed to demonstrate that it [*2]was entitled to summary judgment dismissing the complaint based on plaintiff’s failure to appear for EUOs, as the initial EUO request had been sent more than 30 days after defendant had received the claims at issue and, therefore, the requests were nullities as to those claims”
No matter how many times you try to appeal the same issue of law, the same result happens. Yet, under First Department precedent (Unitrin v. All of NY), the failure to mail the EUO letter within 15-calendar days of receipt of the bill is fatal.
