Orthopedic Associates v. HIG

Our Hawaii doctors and medical providers have prevailed in the case of Orthopedic Associates v. HIG (Haw. Sup. Ct. 12-7-05). In that case the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled that many auto insurers have failed to comply with statutory denial and notice requirements when they “down-coded” tens of thousands of medical bills owed to doctors for treatment arising out of motor vehicle accidents.
