How to determine mileage for reimbursement for No Fault?

Asked over 2 years ago - Brooklyn, NY

The person who's been helping me get to my appointments never kept track of their miles through the odometer and really don't have much to go by except receipts for tolls for reimbursement.

Is there a way to figure out the miles without shortening ourselves for gas expenses, and whatever else especially with how prices have gone up cause of the hurricane.

    Answered . No Fault mileage is based upon the same reimbursement as New York Worker's Compensation. It can vary due to gas price fluctuations. Under the Regulation, you have 90 days from the date of the health service to claim your mileage or other transportation expenses. For mileage, you put down the name of the medical facility you visited and the address. If you went by car, you find the mileage from your home/work to the facility (you can use Mapquest) and just put down the miles. If you used public transportation, you must show receipts.

    You may not be aware of this, but you are entitled to mileage reimbursement when you attend No Fault Medical Exams scheduled by your insurance company.

    Fax or mail this information in to your No Fault Carrier with the claim number. Make sure you keep the fax confirmation.

    If you wish, send me an email and I will send you the mileage reimbursement form I give to my own clients.
