Raz Acupuncture, P.C. As Assignee of Luis Rebaza v. Geico General Ins. Co

New York Supreme and/or Appellate Courts SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE TERM, SECOND DEPARTMENT, 2d, 11th and 13th JUDICIAL DISTRICTS

RAZ ACUPUNCTURE, P.C. AS ASSIGNEE OF LUIS REBAZA,
APPELLANT, --
v.
GEICO GENERAL INS. CO.,
RESPONDENT.

Appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Kings County (Reginald A. Boddie, J.), entered May 18, 2010.

RAZ Acupuncture, P.C. v GEICO Gen. Ins. Co.

Decided on September 13, 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This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.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., RIOS and ALIOTTA, JJ

The order, insofar as appealed from as limited by the brief, denied the branches of plaintiff's motion seeking summary judgment as to its claims for services rendered from June 28, 2006 to September 26, 2006 and billed under procedure code 97810, and granted the branches of defendant's cross motion seeking summary judgment dismissing so much of the complaint as sought to recover for those claims. The appeal is deemed to be from so much of a judgment of the same court entered September 21, 2010 as dismissed so much of the complaint as sought to recover for those claims (see CPLR 5501 [c]).

ORDERED that the judgment, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed, without costs.

In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff moved for summary judgment and defendant cross-moved for summary judgment dismissing the complaint. Plaintiff appeals, as limited by its brief, from so much of an order of the Civil Court as denied the branches of plaintiff's motion seeking summary judgment as to its claims for services rendered from June 28, 2006 to September 26, 2006 and billed under procedure code 97810, and granted the branches of defendant's cross motion seeking summary judgment dismissing so much of the complaint as sought to recover for those claims. The appeal is deemed to be from so much of a judgment of the same court entered September 21, 2010 as dismissed the complaint insofar as it sought to recover for those claims (see CPLR 5501 [c]).

Contrary to plaintiff's arguments on appeal, defendant demonstrated that it 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 judgment, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed.

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