Kentucky aims to stop predatory medical treatment providers

Kentucky is making an effort to crack down on automobile crash rings with the passage and implementation in June 2015 of House Bill 153, which deems it illegal to solicit an automobile accident victim for medical treatment within 30 days following the crash.

Insurance Institute of Kentucky executive director Mark Treesh said “unscrupulous providers” make a habit of contacting people involved in the accident, promising to pay them cash and then taking their personal injury protection benefits are used up–typically $10,000. This treatment may be inadequate and prevent victims from later getting the care they actually need with their personal injury protection.

National Insurance Crime Bureau member Tim Lynch said Louisville is in 10th place in the United States with these kinds of suspicious claims.
