Oriental World Acupuncture, P.C. v GEICO

Decided on June 11, 2012

Appellate Term, Second Department

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This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.

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

The order granted plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and implicitly denied defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.

ORDERED that the order is reversed, without costs, plaintiff's motion for summary judgment is denied, and defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is granted.

In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, defendant appeals from an order of the Civil Court granting plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and implicitly denying defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.

The affidavit by defendant's employee, submitted in support of defendant's cross motion, demonstrated that defendant had fully paid plaintiff for the acupuncture services at issue, in accordance with the workers' compensation fee schedule (see Great Wall Acupuncture, P.C. v GEICO Ins. Co., 26 Misc 3d 23 [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2009]). Accordingly, the order is reversed, plaintiff's motion for summary judgment is denied and defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is granted.

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