Our goal is to make your profession as a chiropractor, a little more convenient, by providing you with the resources your need to treat your EMC patients recently in a car accident. PIP Coverage in Florida allows for you to be able to treat these patients and receive adequate payment only once they have been verified by a doctor to have a certifiable EMC. At TeleEMC we specialize in making this process easier, faster and more efficient. We understand that Florida auto insurance laws can be tricky, that where we come in to make your life easier as a chiropractor. No more headaches trying to understand a Florida PIP fee schedule, or looking into the details of whether your client can fir the requirements for PIP Florida coverage. Once your client has been seen by one of our highly certified doctors, you will be able to receive the insurance money you need to treat your chiro patient.
