State Farm attempt to avoid medical payments is denied
The Plaintiff TBCI, Inc. provided psychological and professional services to five individual patients who had suffered head injuries in auto collisions. After-the-fact, State Farm attempted to avoid payment for these services, claiming that the limited license psycholgist employees had exceeded their authority in providing services, and that the services were improperly "block billed". The Trial Court summarily decided in favor of State Farm, denying payments to the Plaintiff. The Court of Appeals reversed and sent the case back to the trial court for a complete hearing on whether the billed services were actually provided and whether the limited license employees were properly supervised.
