North Port, Florida (PRWEB) February 10, 2013
Dr. Daniel Barr, an experienced chiropractor and owner of West Coast Wellness, knows how difficult it can be to find the right healthcare provider after an auto accident, especially following recent changes to Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law. Dr. Barr explains, “Given all the uncertainty about PIP in the medical community, very few—if any—primary care or walk-in clinics will accept PIP claims, but we will accept all PIP claims.” The Auto Injury area of the West Coast Wellness website explains the practice’s treatment priorities when it comes to auto injuries and explains how the office can coordinate both care and benefits.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s important to understand your options and to seek evaluation and treatment as soon as possible. While it can sometimes take weeks for symptoms to appear following a collision, seeing the right healthcare provider promptly can help victims identify injuries sooner and reduce the amount of pain and disability they experience as a result. In some cases, it can also reduce recovery time and make rehab more successful. According to Dr. Barr, the changes to Florida’s No-Fault system also make it important that victims act quickly for financial reasons. “One of the changes that became effective on January 1, 2013 is that anyone involved in an accident must seek out medical help within 14 days or lose all their medical benefit of up to $10,000.”
Given the PIP law’s new requirements, it’s more important than ever that people have access to good information sources. The Auto Injury area at wcwellness.com can help. It’s part of West Coast Wellness’s end-to-end approach to coordinating care and coordinating benefits for auto accident victims. Dr. Barr describes this approach: “We have 28 years of experience serving the unique needs of accident victims and a team of specialists—chiropractic, physiotherapy and orthopedic surgery—at one location to handle all the medical needs that may arise out of an auto injury. And we offer same-day appointments so that patients can get help quickly when they need it.”
