Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is the portion of the auto policy that provides coverage for medical
expenses. These medical expenses are subject to policy limits, deductibles, co-payments and any applicable medical fee schedules. Additionally, these medical expenses must be for services that are deemed medically necessary and causally related to the motor vehicle accident. With the adoption of the Automobile Cost Reduction Act of 1998, several important changes have been made in the way a claim is processed. Additional information regarding Decision Point Review/Pre-Certification can be accessed on the Internet at the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurances website at http://www.nj.gov/dobi//filings.htm.

Decision Point Review
Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 11:3-4, the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance has published standard
courses of treatment, known as Care Paths, for soft tissue injuries, collectively referred to as Identified
Injuries. Additionally, guidelines for certain diagnostic tests have been established by the New Jersey
Department of Banking and Insurance according to N.J.A.C. 11:3-4. Decision Points are intervals within the
Care Paths where treatment can be evaluated for a decision about the continuation or choice of further
treatment. At Decision Points, the eligible injured person or the health care provider must provide Premier
Prizm with information regarding further treatment the health care provider intends to provide.
In accordance with N.J.A.C. 11:3-4.5, the administration of any of the following diagnostic tests is subject to
Decision Point Review, regardless of diagnosis.
Diagnostic Tests which are subject to Decision Point Review according to N.J.A.C. 11:3-4.5
- Needle Electromyography (EMG)
- Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SSEP)

Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 11:3-4.7, the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance, Premier Prizm’s PreCertification Plan requires pre-authorization of certain treatment/diagnostic tests or services. Failure to precertify these services may result in penalties/co-payments even if services are deemed medically necessary.
If the eligible injured person does not have an Identified Injury, your treating provider is required to obtain
Pre-Certification of treatment, diagnostic tests, services, prescriptions, durable medical equipment or other
potentially covered expenses as noted below:
- Non-emergency inpatient and outpatient hospital care
- Non-emergency surgical procedures
- Extended Care Rehabilitation Facilities
- Outpatient care for soft-tissue/disc injuries of the person’s neck, back and related structures not
included within the diagnoses covered by the Care Paths.

Decision Point Review Pre-Certification Process
On behalf of Geico General Insurance Company, Premier Prizm will review all treatment plan requests and
medical documentation submitted. A decision will be rendered within three business days of receipt of a
completed “Attending Provider Treatment Plan” form request with supporting medical documentation. If
additional information is requested, the decision will be rendered within three days of our receipt of the
additional information. In the event that Geico General Insurance Company or Premier Prizm does not
receive sufficient medical information accompanying the request for treatment, diagnostic tests or services to
make a decision, an administrative denial will be rendered, until such information is received. If a decision is
not rendered within three business days of receipt of an “Attending Provider Treatment Plan” form, your
treating health care provider may render medically necessary treatment until a decision is rendered.
Please note that the denial of Decision Point Review and Pre-certification requests on the basis of medical
necessity shall be the determination of a physician. In the case of treatment prescribed by a dentist, the denial
shall be by a dentist.
We encourage you to participate in a voluntary pre-certification process by bringing a treatment plan request
form to your provider or have them contact us for all services requested. Premier Prizm will utilize
nationally accepted criteria to authorize a mutually agreeable course of treatment. In consideration for your
participation in this voluntary pre-certification process, the bills your provider submits, when consistent with
the agreed plan, will not be subject to review or audit as long as they are in accordance with the policy limits,
deductibles, and any applicable PIP fee schedule. This process increases the communication between the
patient, provider and Premier Prizm to develop a comprehensive treatment plan with the avoidance of
unnecessary interruptions in care.
Independent Medical Examinations
Premier Prizm or Geico General Insurance Company may request an Independent Medical Examination. At
times, this examination may be necessary to reach a decision in response to the treatment plan request by the
treating provider. This examination will be scheduled with a provider in the same discipline and at a location
reasonably convenient to the injured person. Premier Prizm will schedule the appointment for the
examination within 7 days of the day of the receipt of the request unless otherwise agreed by the
insured/designee to extend the timeframe. Medically necessary treatment may proceed while the examination
is being scheduled and until the Independent Medical Examination results become available. Upon
completion of the Independent Medical Examination, your provider will be notified of the results via fax or
mail within three business days of the examination. A copy of the examining report is available to you, your
designee or your treating provider upon receipt of your written request.
Premier Prizm will notify you or your designee and the treating provider of the scheduled physical or mental
examination and of the consequences for unexcused failure to appear at two or more appointments. If you,
the injured party, have two or more unexcused failures to attend the scheduled exam, notification will be
immediately sent to you or your designee, and all the providers treating you for the diagnosis (and related
diagnosis) contained in the attending physicians treatment plan form. This notification will place you on
notice that all future treatment diagnostic testing or durable medical equipment required for the diagnosis and
(related diagnosis) contained in the attending physicians treatment plan form will not be reimbursable as a
consequence for failure to comply with the plan.
Voluntary Network Services
Premier Prizm has established a network of approved vendors for diagnostic imaging studies for all MRI’s
and CAT Scans, durable medical equipment with a cost or monthly rental over $100.00, prescription drugs
and all electrodiagnostic testing, listed in N.J.A.C 11:3-4.5(b) 1-3, (unless performed in conjunction with a
needle EMG by your treating provider). If you, the injured party utilize one of the pre-approved networks,
the 30% co-payment will be waived. If any of the electrodiagnostic tests listed in N.J.A.C. 11:3-4.5(b) are
performed by the treating provider in conjunction with the needle EMG, the 30% co-payment will not apply.
In cases of prescriptions, the $10.00 co-pay of Geico General Insurance Company will be waived if
obtained from one of the pre-approved networks.
For diagnostic tests of MRI’s and CAT Scans, the approved voluntary network that can be utilized is either
Atlantic Imaging or One Call. Once a diagnostic test that is subject to pre-approval through Decision Point
Review/ Pre-Certification is authorized, a representative of Premier Prizm will contact one of the two
vendors and forward the information to them for scheduling purposes. A representative from the diagnostic
facility will contact you, the injured party and schedule the test at a time and place convenient to them.
For Durable Medical Equipment with a cost or monthly rental over $100.00, the approved networks are
Progressive Medical, Inc. Once a request for Durable Medical Equipment that is subject to pre-approval
through Decision Point Review/Pre-Certification is authorized, a representative of Premier Prizm will contact
Progressive Medical or MyMatrixx and forward the information to them. The equipment will be shipped to
the injured party from Progressive Medical, 24 hours after the request is received.
When you are in need of prescription drugs, the approved networks are MyMatrixx and Jordan Reese. A
pharmacy card will be issued that can be presented at numerous participating pharmacies. A list of
participating pharmacies will be mailed to you once the need for a prescription has been identified.
For Electrodiagnostic Testing, the approved networks are One Call and Atlantic Neurodiagnostic Group.
Once an electrodiagnostic test that is subject to pre-approval through Decision Point Review/PreCertification is authorized, a representative of Premier Prizm will contact one of vendors and forward the

the injured party and schedule the test at a time and place convenient to you. When Electrodiagnostic tests

If you do not utilize a network provider/facility to obtain those services, tests or equipment listed in the
voluntary utilization review program section, payment for those services rendered will result in a co-payment
of 30% (in addition to any deductible or co-payment that applies under the policy) for medically necessary
treatment, tests and equipment. Keep in mind that treatment which is not medically necessary is not
reimbursable under the terms of the policy.
Any reduction shall be applied prior to any other deductible or co-payment requirement.
Assignment of Benefits
As a condition of the assignment of benefits, you agree to comply with all procedures of the Decision Point
Review Plan, Decision Point Review and precertification requirements (collectively, “Plan”). You
also agree to initiate all Pre-certification and Decision Point Review requests as required by the Plan. In
the event you fail to comply with the conditions of the Plan, and such failure results in the imposition of a
copayment penalty, you will hold the patient harmless for such co-payment penalty insofar as you will not
seek payment from the patient for any unpaid portion of the medical services arising from such co-payment
penalty. Failure to comply with the Decision Point Review /pre-certification Plan or the requirements to
follow the Internal Appeals Process prior to filing litigation including arbitrations will void any and all prior
assignment of benefits under this policy. Should you choose to retain an attorney to handle the Internal
Appeals Process, you do so at your own expense. Additional conditions that also apply to you include:
a. Submission of disputes as defined in the Plan to the Internal Dispute Resolution Process
set forth therein.
After final determination, submission of disputes not resolved by the Internal Dispute
Resolution Process to the Personal Injury Protection Dispute Resolution Process set forth in

d. Compliance with a request by GEICO to (i.) Submit to an examination under oath, and (ii.)

by the Plan and under the Conditional Assignment of benefits. The Conditional
Assignment of benefits may be revoked by the assignee, and the assignee shall be entitled
to pursue payment from the patient, when benefits are not payable due to lack of coverage
and/or violation of a policy condition by the patient.
GEICO’s Conditional Assignment of Benefits is the only valid assignment of benefits. The assignee
agrees that GEICO has the right to reject, terminate or revoke the GEICO conditional Assignment of
Benefits. An assignment of benefits may require GEICO’s written consent.
Internal Appeal Process
The Internal Appeal Process shall be utilized before filing arbitration.
All appeals concerning a Decision related to a Treatment Request

for medical services is not approved your treating provider can request a reconsideration by the Physician

review by a Medical Review Organization. However, if a determination of benefits coverage has not been
made or, if we contend that we do not owe coverage under this policy or that we are not required to
provide benefits under this policy because of a misrepresentation of a material fact made by an insured,
you or anyone else seeking coverage and/or benefits from us, then we shall, at our sole option, have the
right to have that dispute resolved in either the Superior Court of New Jersey or by a dispute resolution
