Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.

This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.

Decided on December 19, 2011

PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and RIOS, JJ

The order, insofar as appealed from as limited by the brief, denied the branches of defendant's motion for summary judgment seeking the dismissal of the first through fourth causes of action.

ORDERED that the order, insofar as appealed from, is reversed, without costs, and the branches of defendant's motion for summary judgment seeking the dismissal of the first through fourth causes of action are granted.

In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, defendant appeals, as limited by its brief, from so much of an order as denied the branches of its motion for summary judgment seeking the dismissal of the first through fourth causes of action.

In support of its motion, defendant submitted, among other things, affirmed peer review reports which set forth the factual basis and medical rationale for the doctor's determination that there was a lack of medical necessity for the supplies at issue. Defendant's showing that the supplies were not medically necessary was not rebutted by plaintiff. As plaintiff has not challenged the Civil Court's finding, in effect, that defendant is otherwise entitled to judgment, the branches of defendant's motion for summary judgment seeking the dismissal of plaintiff's first through fourth causes of action are granted (see Delta Diagnostic Radiology, P.C. v Integon Natl. Ins. Co., 24 Misc 3d 136[A], 2009 NY Slip Op 51502[U] [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2009]; Delta Diagnostic Radiology, P.C. v American Tr. Ins. Co., 18 Misc 3d 128[A], 2007 NY Slip Op 52455[U] [App Term, 2d & 11th Jud Dists 2007]; A. Khodadadi Radiology, P.C. v NY Cent. Mut. Fire Ins. Co., 16 Misc 3d 131[A], 2007 NY Slip Op 51342[U] [App Term, 2d & 11th Jud Dists 2007]).

Accordingly, the order, insofar as appealed from, is reversed and the branches of defendant's motion for summary judgment seeking the dismissal of the first through fourth causes of action are granted.

Pesce, P.J., Weston and Rios, JJ., concur.
